The Sutcliffe Clinic

OUR APPROACH TO DEVELOPMENTAL-BEHAVIORAL PEDIATRICS

Providing high-quality, personalized medical care for children and families with developmental and behavioral concerns.

The Sutcliffe Clinic uses an integrated and interdisciplinary approach to evaluate and treat a wide range of developmental and behavioral difficulties in children, providing assessment and psychological testing, therapy and family counseling to enable each child to achieve their potential.

Our team specializes in the evaluation and treatment of the following conditions: Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, anxiety disorders, psychiatric issues, developmental concerns, conduct disorders, behavioral issues, development delays and disabilities, genetic conditions, habit disorders, intellectual disabilities, learning disabilities, and regulatory disorders.

Our Autism Behavioral Services support children with Autism Spectrum Disorders while our Medical Wellness Team treats social-communication disorders, ADHD, anxiety and developmental delays. Our treatment is provided in many environments and leverages Incidental Teaching, Pivotal Response Training (PRT), Functional Communication Training, Floortime Philosophy and Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) Therapy.

We work closely with primary care physicians, community services, and school districts to help families navigate the difficult journey from assessment and potential diagnosis to an effective management plan and strategies for accessing community resources.
