Child Development Center

If you are concerned about your child’s development, our specialists at the Child Development Center at The Children's Regional Hospital are here to help.

We work with you and your child to understand his or her strengths and needs and identify support and resources for his or her success. Our team is a major referral center for comprehensive diagnostic assessments of infants, toddlers, school-aged children, and adolescents.
