The Division of Behavioral Pediatrics provides inpatient and outpatient consultation services and directs a weekly Children's Hospital behavioral clinic for children with behavioral disorders and ADHD. Behavioral Pediatric evaluations are currently provided by a child and adolescent psychiatrist on our faculty, at Children's Hospital Outpatient Center. This is an educational opportunity as well for medical, nursing, and social work students, pediatric and family medicine residents, and participants in our mini-fellowship program in ADHD and other learning differences.

The Dunbar Center For Learning Success is dedicated to increasing awareness of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and Learning Disorders to health care professionals, educators, and the general public. The program is directed by Robin Welsh, M.D., a child and adolescent psychiatrist, and it involves multiple disciplines who are involved in the care of children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, learning disorders and other behavioral disorders. In addition to our resident and medical student training programs, we offer a mini-fellowship program for the primary care physician who wants additional expertise in ADHD and LD.
