Developmental and Behavioral Health for the Pediatric Patient

Date & Location
Tuesday, October 30, 2018, 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Philadelphia, PA


According to the Centers for Disease Control in March 2018, parent-reported information from the 2011-12 National Survey of Children’s Health showed that one of seven U.S. children aged 2 to 8 years had a diagnosed mental, behavioral or developmental disorder. This conference will address some of the leading developmental and behavioral health concerns pediatricians and primary care providers deal with on a daily basis: autism, ADHD/learning challenges, anxiety, depression, weight management and school problems. Each lecture will include evidence-based treatments, medication management and resource suggestions, with the goal of providing attendees the most current best practices and practical tips for caring for patients with developmental or behavioral needs.


Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:

  1. Identify common developmental and behavioral health symptoms that can present in pediatric patients
  2. Identify common medical and mental health conditions that can occur with developmental or behavioral disorders and understand how they may impact the child’s function
  3. Identify resources that can be utilized in the office or shared with families to address developmental, behavioral or mental health concerns in children


The conference will be held in the Ruth and Tristram Colket, Jr. Translational Research Building, 3501 Civic Center Blvd., first floor, Philadelphia, PA 19104, on the Raymond G. Perelman Campus at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. The registration fee is $150 and includes continental breakfast, breaks, lunch, parking and syllabus material.

The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education to physicians.
