Pediatric Evaluations

You know your child best, so trust your instincts! We are children’s biggest advocates, and it takes a village to support and raise a child. Whether thinking about your child, a grandchild, niece or nephew, younger sibling or a friend’s child, it can be hard to bring up conversations with a loved one when we notice signs about a child’s development that are different than other kids. We may have learned growing up that certain terms have stigmas or negative reactions, so it may be easier to dismiss the instinct.

So often we hear “I had a gut feeling…” followed by an array of emotions that range from joy to feelings of anxiety and fear, but it’s ok to have these feelings.

There isn’t a manual on how to raise a child, and there isn’t a one-size fits all approach either. We look to our friends and family for guidance on what to do or what not to do. And, it’s not uncommon to feel like we aren’t being heard or our concerns aren’t accepted by those we feel close to. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed. 

The care we provide and decisions we make for our children at a young age can lead to brighter outcomes and even help them feel more accepted.

So, if you’re wondering about behaviors you’re noticing in a child you are close to, know that you’re not alone. Together, we will provide a safe space to have a conversation and help you navigate this journey

Some behaviors to consider:

  • Does the child struggle with communication?
  • Is the child having temper tantrums often or unexplained outbursts?
  • Are transitions or changes in schedule extremely difficult for the child?
  • Is the child having challenges interacting or playing with others?

We’ve designed the As You Are experience to be refreshing, amidst a backdrop in our healthcare system today that can feel hopeless. We are here to do this together.

Not sure where to start?

Try completing a short questionnaire in the comfort and privacy of your own home to help you better understand if the behaviors you are seeing should be assessed by a physician.
