Welcome to the WMed Pediatric Multiple Disabilities Clinic
Our Pediatric Multiple Disabilities Clinic serves as a resource for the region, providing multidisciplinary care and consultation for children with a variety of genetic, congenital, and developmental disorders. The team consists of providers from pediatrics, orthopedics, psychology, speech, occupational and physical therapy, orthotics, social work, and dietician services. These clinics focus on diagnostic and interventional care often required by children in these patient populations. Comprehensive summaries and recommendations are supplied to the referring physicians. The goal of this clinic is to ensure comprehensive services through a multidisciplinary team approach and to provide support for local primary care providers.
Children's Multidisciplinary Specialty Clinics
Many of our patients are covered by Children's Special Health Care Services (CSHCS). This allows us to provide enhanced services that include a multidisciplinary clinic in which patients may be seen by a nutritionist, physical therapy, psychology and dentistry providers, in addition to our clinic team. The State of Michigan allows children diagnosed with multiple disabilities one comprehensive visit, three follow up visits and 10 supplementary visits per year.
