Our developmental behavioral pediatricians work with you and your child’s primary care doctor. We’ll help take the worry out of your child’s care by becoming your one comprehensive source for specialized care and knowledge. We coordinate care from a wide range of sources, including teachers and school staff, occupational and speech therapists, child psychologists and therapists, and more. Our collaborative team approach with educational psychology and behavioral health results in a thorough assessment and treatment plan.
Well known and respected in the health care community, our specialists will partner with your family to enhance your child’s achievements and quality of life.
Typically, before a new patient and his/her family meets with one of our developmental behavioral pediatricians, several things occur:
- An in-person or phone meeting with our educational psychologist or nurse specialist.
- Your child’s information is reviewed by a developmental behavioral pediatrician and he/she determines next steps. Often we will have questionnaires and forms for your child’s school and family or daycare staff to complete.
- Once all forms have been completed and received, you and your child will meet in person with our developmental behavioral pediatrician and other team specialists, if indicated, for a personalized assessment and management plan.

Our developmental behavioral pediatricians are based in the HealthPartners Riverside Clinic in Minneapolis. Most appointments will take place here.
