Providence Neurodevelopmental Center for Children

At Providence Neurodevelopmental Center for Children, our specialists (developmental pediatricians, pediatric psychologist, speech, physical and occupational therapists, audiologists, social workers and nutritionists) use state-of-the-art technology to assess your child’s developmental progress in gross motor skills, fine motor skills or speech/language skills. They work with families to create personalized treatment programs designed to help each child reach his or her highest potential.

Providence Neurodevelopmental Center for Children provides a comprehensive, family-centered approach to helping children with developmental needs, from infancy through adolescence. Our developmental pediatricians work together with our psychologist, therapists, audiologists, dietitians and social workers to create individualized programs for each child. This collaboration allows us to improve outcomes by evaluating each child’s ongoing needs and providing emergent therapies. Our clinic focuses on the importance of play in creating a successful home program.
