The section of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics at Columbus Children's Hospital (Nationwide Childrens Hospital) is an active participant in the hospital's research, education and advocacy missions. Services cover the complete spectrum of developmental and behavioral needs of children, adolescents and their families. Health care professionals work in close association with other behavioral health specialists such as psychiatry, psychology, social work, and other medical sub-specialists.
Among its services is the Autism Center, a comprehensive service that provides intensive early intervention and school-age behavioral intervention for children with autism from ages two through approximately eight years of age. One of a handful in the country, Children's comprehensive autism and related disorders program is designed to substantially improve access to better quality care, treatment and education for children challenged by autism. The center offers an Intensive Behavioral Intervention Program as part of its comprehensive pediatric autism program. Multidisciplinary in nature, the program is comprised of three parts: treatment, research/advocacy and diagnostics.
