Department of Child Development and Behavior

The Children’s Medical Center at Rockford Health System provides a variety of inpatient and outpatient child development and behavior services—many of which are only available here.

Our multidisciplinary team of specialists works with:

  • Neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) graduates;
  • Children with developmental delays or suspected developmental delays;
  • Children with behavioral challenges;
  • Children with specific conditions such as Down Syndrome, cerebral palsy or autism; and
  • Families in need of intensive support.

We also offer a neonatal follow-up clinic, a developmental diagnostic clinic, and child psychology services.
