Child Development and Behavioral Health

The Child Development and Behavioral Health Clinic provides consultations and evaluations for children with developmental, academic or behavioral difficulties.

The clinic’s mission is to evaluate a child’s development and behavior, help create an appropriate treatment plan, and transition the child back to the primary care physician for follow-up care – often in conjunction with other services. The clinic does not provide any therapies or psychiatric treatment. In accordance with the clinic’s mission as a developmental pediatric clinic, the clinic gives priority appointments to children 5 years of age and under. Children ages 6-9 will be evaluated, but may have a longer wait time.

Conditions Treated

  • Autism spectrum disorder

  • Developmental delay

  • ADHD

  • Learning disabilities

  • Intellectual disabilities

Referral Information

To refer a patient, physicians should fax a completed University Pediatrics New Patient Referral/Consult Fax Form and the completed Supplemental Referral Form to 803-434-1920.

Upon receiving an appropriate referral, the clinic staff will mail the child’s parents a packet of information and forms that must be completed and returned in the provided self-addressed stamped envelope. Parents will have four weeks to return the packet. If the packet is not received in this general time frame, we will notify the referring physician. A re-consult will be required if the referral still is needed.
