About our practice

At the Palmetto Health-USC Child Development and Behavioral Health, we provide consultations and evaluations for children with developmental, academic or behavioral difficulties. Our clinic is comprised of an interdisciplinary team of developmental pediatricians, psychologists and social workers. The clinic’s mission is to provide a comprehensive assessment in order to inform a multifaceted treatment plan.

Common diagnoses we see at our clinic include:

  • Autism spectrum disorder
  • Developmental delays
  • ADHD
  • Learning disabilities
  • Intellectual disabilities

We are a training site for pediatric residents and third-year medical students, as well as students from a variety of other disciplines including speech/language pathology, psychology and genetic counseling.

Our services

After referral to our clinic, families meet with a developmental pediatrician or psychologist to discuss their concerns. Comprehensive assessments are planned to evaluate a child’s cognitive, academic, and social-emotional development.

Families participate in a face-to-face feedback meeting and receive individualized recommendations for their child. Our physicians also consult about medication as indicated. Families receive written reports after the conclusion of the visit.

Our office does not provide therapy or psychiatric treatment. We serve children ages 0-21 from Columbia, Lexington and across the Midlands of South Carolina.
