Developmental Care

Our Developmental Care is designed to to help your child stay on target as they grow physically, emotionally, and behaviorally. Children may be referred for concerns such as:

  • Autism/ASD
  • Motor Delay
  • Physical & Congenital Abnormalities
  • Failure to Thrive
  • Hypotonia
  • Micro/Macrocephaly
  • Attention Deficit Disorder

Early Evaluation Clinic

Referrals for developmental care are changing across the state of Indiana. Our goal is to help sort out the needs of your child and get you linked up with needed services in your community. During a consultation, your child will have his/her height and weight taken. Staff will assist you in filling out a form that checks your child's development. A history and physical will be done.

The STAT (Screen Tool for Autism spectrum disorders in Toddlers) will be performed. This is an interactive tool involving a set of toys and includes a snack. (*Please inform the nurse of any food allergies.)

Following the test, the pediatrician will then develop a clinic summary of your child's visit with any diagnosis, medications, referrals, resources and future appointments which will be shared with you before you leave. A summary of your clinic visit will also be sent to your primary care provided.

Our Physicians

   Maria Ranola, MD             Sara Dillon, NP                 Denise McDowell, NP       Jane Rauscher, NP

* A physician referral is required for all appointments. If you believe your child would benefit from consultation with our specialty physician, please discuss this with your child's primary care physician.
