Down ClinicThe division focuses on assessment and treatment of children with neurodevelopmental disabilities. Our clinics provide developmental screening, medical evaluation and treatment, and psychological assessment and intervention.  We offer care to children with a wide variety of developmental concerns, including autism, cerebral palsy and spasticity, intellectual disability, developmental delay, and ADHD. 

Our research is conducted in close collaboration with the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center. Faculty members are investigating autism, sleep in children with autism, how the brain patterns of those with dyslexia change when learning new words, and assessing the utility of behavior management education for families.
