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.

2015 Highlights

  • The division continued to expand its teaching activities last year. Under the direction of Christina Iyama-Kurtycz, MD, all division members participated in training for the developmental-behavioral rotation for pediatrics residents; the Newborn Follow-Up Clinic greatly increased training time for neonatology fellows; and Janet Legare, MD, developed Bone Dysplasia Clinic training materials for colleagues and parents. 
  • From FY14 to FY15, visits at the expanded Newborn Follow-Up Clinic more than doubled, and overall visits at the division’s Waisman Center Clinics were 20% over projections.
  • Maria Stanley, MD, participated in the UW Health adolescent MyChart workgroup to develop and implement a pilot to expand MyChart proxy access for parents and caregivers of adolescents with disabilities.
