The Texas Children’s Hospital Down Syndrome Clinic is designed to provide children with an evaluation from a team of health care professionals with a special interest in working with children who have Down syndrome.

All children will undergo a complete medical evaluation and developmental assessment by a developmental pediatrician from the Meyer Center for Developmental Pediatrics. A social worker from the Meyer Center will provide resources and support for families. Providers from the Physical and Occupational Therapy Departments of Texas Children’s Hospital will provide treatment recommendations for home and school therapy. A psychologist from the Meyer Center will conduct intellectual evaluations to monitor cognitive profiles of each child. A nurse coordinator will be available to facilitate referrals to other doctors and assure continuity.
