Helping children and their families be as successful as possible at school, home and community.

Child development is the physical, emotional and intellectual progress your child makes as they grow. If your child has chronic behavioral problems, trouble learning or developmental delays, they may be referred to a child development specialist for extra help.

Baylor Scott & White McLane Children’s child development specialists provide a comprehensive, individualized medical and developmental assessment of children with behavioral and learning differences. We counsel parents and families to help them access appropriate therapies and services within the Baylor Scott & White Health system, the community and the school.
