Division Highlights - Developmental Pediatrics

2007 - 2008 Highlights

Lawrence Kaplan, MD, ScM, joins the division

Division continues to receive federal funding from the Maternal and Child Health Bureau’s Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and Related Disabilities (LEND) program


The Division of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics serves children with established developmental disorders, as well as children who may be at risk for developmental delays, through over 25 different clinical programs.

We draw on the skills of developmental pediatricians, nurse practitioners, psychologists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, speech therapists, audiologists, social workers, family advocates, and nutritionists to provide outstanding family-centered care. All of our clinics are closely aligned and communicate routinely with colleagues through a coordinated care system.

The division also conducts and participates in numerous research activities related to advancing knowledge about human development, many of which are based at the Waisman Center.

In addition to teaching medical students and residents, we also train future leaders from many disciplines in the field of neurodevelopmental disabilities through graduate and postgraduate programs at the University of Wisconsin.
