Pediatric residents at Holtz Children’s Hospital in the Jackson Health System spend at least one month at the Mailman Center for their required rotation in Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics. The clinical training prepares residents to implement developmental screening, principles of early diagnosis and treatment, and long-term follow-up of children with chronic conditions and developmental disabilities. During this rotation, residents serve as the medical representatives on several interdisciplinary diagnostic teams, observe community-based programs, and learn the basics of audiology, psycho-educational testing, therapeutic interventions including Parent Child Interaction Therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech and language pathology, and a demonstration of assistive technology.

Like all trainees at the Mailman Center, pediatric residents participate in the LEND (Leadership Development in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities) curriculum, a federally funded interprofessional training program based on family professional partnerships.
