Division Highlights - Neurodevelopmental-Behavioral Pediatrics

The Division of Neurodevelopmental-Behavioral Pediatrics provides diagnosis and clinical care for infants and children who have, or are at risk for, neurodevelopmental or developmental-behavioral problems.

Our faculty see patients at the UW Health East Clinic, and at the following Waisman Center clinics: Autism and Developmental Disabilities Clinic, Newborn Follow-Up Clinic, Feeding Team, Down Syndrome Clinic, and the Neuromotor Development Clinic.

Division faculty also provide education on neurodevelopmental disabilities through invited presentations, postgraduate programs at UW-Madison and rotations for second-year pediatric residents and neonatal fellows.

2013 Highlights

  • Maria A. Stanley, MD, joined the division as chief and medical director of the Waisman Center Clinics. She comes to UW from the Indiana University School of Medicine/Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis.
  • The division’s primary focus has been to expand access to services. With the support of additional hospital funding, we have undertaken major clinic scheduling and workflow changes to support greatly improved access. Access has also been expanded in our Down Syndrome and Newborn Follow-Up Clinics.
  • The team has also undertaken continuous efforts to optimize quality of care for our patients and families, and to provide a supportive and positive experience, despite the difficult nature of the diagnoses being provided.
  • Efforts are underway to enhance the partnership between research and clinical care at the Waisman Center.
