Developmental Disabilities Center

The Developmental Disabilities Center at Mount Sinai West is dedicated to providing comprehensive neurology and psychiatry services for developmentally disabled children and young adults in New York City. Founded in the 1960s as a clinic for infants with congenital rubella, our Center is a nurse-coordinated program that cares for the health needs of children and adults with chronic neurologic conditions.

We are dedicated to caring for the whole patient by providing access to additional medical services, including developmental pediatricians, primary care providers,, and neurologists, as well as psychiatrists for assessment and management of behavioral issues. Our social worker works closely with individuals and families to help them obtain the resources needed to manage these conditions. The Center can also refer to geneticists for testing and family counseling.

The Developmental Disabilities Center is committed to serving the specific needs of each child and young adult in our care to help them achieve the best possible health.
