Developmental Disabilities

La Rabida has long been recognized as a leader in the diagnosis and treatment of children with developmental disabilities. We offer beyond-medicine care for children with Down syndrome or cerebral palsy and other neuromuscular disorders and those experiencing developmental delays.

Each child is at the center of an interdisciplinary team consisting of a pediatrician and subspecialist physicians as well other clinicians such as occupational and physical therapists, a speech language pathologist, a registered dietitian, and mental health professionals.

Our goal is to optimize the child’s potential for independence at home and school, focusing on the child’s total well-being.
