Developmental Disabilities: What Parents Need To Know

This information is useful for children

Experts from the Yale Medicine Child Study Center's Developmental Disabilities Program can help children with all kinds of developmental delays. This can include autism, Down syndrome and other forms of delay. As James McPartland, PhD, explains, our goal is to steer a child's development to where it is most helpful for the child and for their families.

Clinical Trials

New treatments for many conditions are tested in clinical trials, which ultimately bring lifesaving new drugs and devices to the patients who need them most. By participating in a clinical trial, you may get access to the most advanced treatments for your condition, and help determine their benefits for future patients.
