Child Development Services at Franciscan Healthcare provides comprehensive, individualized assessments and treatments for children and adolescents.
Our child development team is made up of experts from a variety of disciplines to ensure that the child's treatment is as thorough and effective as possible. Our mission is to combine a meticulous, but individualized, evaluation with long-term caring follow-up. Our treatment for infants, children, and adolescents is family-centered, with close integration of school and community support services.
Childhood disorders influence the entire family, not just the child involved. Early diagnosis and comprehensive treatment is important in attaining the best possible outcomes for the child.
