Developmental Behavioral Pediatrics is a subspecialty of Pediatrics requiring General Pediatrics training followed by 2 years of additional specialized training. Developmental Behavioral Pediatricians firmly believe that a comprehensive evaluation is essential to properly diagnosing and developing a treatment plan for developmental and behavioral challenges, to ensure optimal outcomes for children with these lifelong conditions. Hidden neurodevelopmental weaknesses can manifest as behavior problems with frustration, anxiety, or loss of self-esteem. It is now also recognized that many teens and adults have suffered from early developmental issues which are now impacting their functioning and mental health. They also deserve comprehensive evaluation and treatment to reach their optimal potential. To this end we have expanded our assessments and treatments to include teens and adults.
Integrative Holistic Medicine is a much improved terminology that has replaced the older term “complementary and alternative medicine”, giving more of a sense of encompassing many healing traditions vs. this or that in addition to our standard western medicine approach. Also implied is the hope that it is more individualized or suited to the patient, but in no way a lesser treatment. Frequently ancient healing systems, such as Ayurveda or Traditional Chinese medicine, serve as a basis for some of the integrated techniques and both have a very long history of being complete treatment, fulfilling our need for “evidence based treatment”. Integrative Holistic Medicine principles encourages treatment of the whole person including mind, body and spirit. We strive to achieve these goals in complete evaluation and treatment of our patients and clients!
