Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics Clinic

The Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics Clinic at our Villa Park Center addresses children with difficulties in development and behavior. Through a partnership with the University of Chicago, this evaluation is conducted by Peter J. Smith, MD, a developmental-behavioral pediatrician,  providing a strong, cohesive team specializing in early behavior needs.

Why Begin Here

The Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics Clinic address every aspect of a child’s developmental and behavioral problems. They treat complex conditions such as autism, developmental delays and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). They work closely with the therapy team at Easter Seals DuPage & Fox Valley to evaluate your child and develop a plan of care. Input from each child's family is at the heart of the clinic as they provide recommendations that most appropriately address the child's abilities and challenges.

Examples of children who would benefit:

  • Learning disabilities including ADHD
  • Problematic behaviors with known disorders/diagnosis (including Down syndrome, Autism, and intellectual disabilities)
  • Difficulties with daily routine (including sleep patterns or toilet training)
  • Behavior issues with developmental delays
