For Kids: The Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrician
A pediatrician who believes your child has developmental challenges will refer you to a developmental and behavioral pediatrician. This doctor will look to see whether there is anything unusual about your child's body. She will examine the nervous system, noting physical strength and coordination as well as behavior, social responsiveness, and speech. This doctor usually coordinates the testing your child may need.
