Our developmental clinic seeks to understand your family and your child, and to help your child reach his or her full potential. To achieve this, we take an empathic, practical, and culturally sensitive approach. We are experts in the field of development for infants, toddlers, and young children. Our team of professionals has extensive experience working with children who have developmental delays, behavioral challenges, autism spectrum and related disorders, and families who just need some extra help with parenting. Upon your first meeting, we begin to develop a plan to provide the best support possible for you and your child. CAAT will work closely with you every step of the way; our goal is to develop a relationship with your family and your child, which helps us to optimally address your specific needs throughout your child’s development.
Families come to us with all kinds of questions and challenges. Our team will strive to answer and address your concerns in a warm, personalized, and professional manner.

- Social concerns
- Self-esteem and emotional regulation concerns
- Neurological and medical problems (i.e. issues related to premature birth, genetic conditions, brain trauma)
