Specialty Services

Penn State Hershey Developmental Pediatric Program offers care for children with developmental delays and behavioral disorders. We offer evaluations to children with:

  • Speech delay
  • Global developmental delay
  • Suspected autism
  • Attention problems
  • Head trauma

Many children are followed over time to ensure they are making expected progress and advise families regarding therapies and educational interventions. Behavioral management is provided for common challenges such as sleep problems and toileting concerns. A written report containing recommendations for intervention, medication treatment, when appropriate, and behavior management strategies is provided to every family and the referring physician.
