Children's Health Service Complex Care


For Professionals

We accept referrals for many neurodevelopmental conditions, including cerebral palsy, global developmental delays, learning disabilities, and sequelae of prematurity (including dysphagia and G-tube management). Please note - While we may diagnose autism, it is not our primary clinical focus. Additional referrals may be recommended. Children over six years of age may not receive complete developmental evaluations by consulting therapists, as these evaluations can take up to 2 hours each. They will receive screening to determine the need for additional community and educational services.

This pediatric clinic will follow children to early adulthood, with the goal of transitioning to adult care clinics between 18-21.


We coordinate four outpatient clinic appointment types to serve a variety of patient needs. For each clinic, patients receive a medical evaluation with every visit. Click on the links below to learn more about each of our specialized clinic types: 

Complex Care

  • General Complex Care Clinic
    Most new referrals will have their first evaluation by the team in our general clinic setting. Here, children (many under the age of 6 years) will receive a full diagnostic assessment from multiple team members, and initiation of a medical diagnostic workup if applicable. Children may be recommended to make follow-up visits with any of the below clinics based on needs.
  • Seating Clinic
    • Most children with mobility needs will see our equipment specialists at some point during their time with us. Every other Tuesday at our Bay Colony location, our pediatrician and nurse practitioner, OT and/or PT partner with representatives from National Seating and Mobility to offer one-stop equipment evaluation, ordering, modification, and repair services.
    • Seating Clinic does accept new patients without prior evaluation through the General Complex Care Clinic, and can assist with equipment needs beyond age 21 with appropriate referral from a patient’s PCP or specialty care physician.
  • Feeding Clinic
    Young children with confirmed or suspected dysphagia receive an outpatient bedside feeding evaluation from speech and/or occupational therapist(s). Nutritional consult is often paired with the feeding evaluation to provide integrative care for patients with or at-risk for malnutrition. Children receive recommendations for further diagnostic evaluation, outpatient therapy referrals, as well as home programs.
  • Education and Coordination Clinic
    • School-aged children with concerns for attention and/or learning concerns receive an educational evaluation by our Educational Support Coordinator to optimize their learning environment based on the medical needs identified by our clinicians. Behavioral medication therapies may be offered by our clinicians depending on diagnosis. Caregiver education on accessing the child’s local special education program (when needed) and troubleshooting common problems is a provided service in this setting.
    • Additionally, children requiring only follow-up medical and/or nutritional support services may be seen in this clinic setting.

We can assist with common behavioral and mental health challenges for children with neurodevelopmental disabilities. However, if you believe a patient requires a full psychiatry evaluation, please note we currently do not employ a child psychiatrist as a part of our Complex Care team.

If you have questions about the referral process or if a child would be a good candidate for our clinic, please call us at 409-772-2331.
