About our practice

At Palmetto Health-USC Child Development and Behavioral Health, we evaluate and care for children who have developmental, academic and/or behavioral difficulties as well as other special issues which may be associated with learning problems, including cerebral palsy.

Our patient families play a key role in our evaluations – a family-centered approach is utilized. We aim to to generate a profile and an appropriate diagnosis and treatment plan that reflects the input from all the team members, including the parents, for the children and young adults we treat in Columbia, Lexington and across the Midlands region of South Carolina.

Our services

Our developmental pediatricians evaluate the child initially and upon his/her referral, the patient is seen by other specialists within, and occasionally outside of, our clinic setting. A parent conference is arranged for discussion and specific recommendations, with most children returned to the referring physician or agency for care. We try and liaison as well with schools, etc. and their representatives may attend the parent conferences.

We work with pediatric residents and third-year medical students, as do students from a variety of other disciplines such as speech/language pathology and psychology. Referrals are usually generated by physicians and other community professionals.
