A parent may consider having a developmental pediatrician conduct an evaluation if their child exhibits any of the following symptoms:
Dr. Mark believes that each child develops and learns in his/her own unique and individual manner. He knows that differences in development and learning may interfere with skill development, social adjustment, academic productivity and behavior. Because he believes that the exclusive reliance on standardized test scores as a sole means of understanding a child’s difficulties is insufficient, he undertakes a thorough evaluation of a child that includes interactions with each person involved in the child’s life.
