Clinical Care

In clinical service, we partner with families and with primary care clinicians. Family-centered care entails listening carefully to families and children as they share their stories, acknowledging their strengths, respecting their cultural roots, meeting their needs, and sharing decision-making.  We follow the biopsychosocial model of human development, considering the unique factors that influence a child’s development as the integration of biological, social, emotional, economic, and political forces. We emphasize a child’s functional abilities over categorical diagnoses. Different models of shared management with primary care clinicians provide seemless transitions in care.

You may be asked to complete forms for your child to assist us in scheduling and serving your child and family.
