Neurodevelopmental Center

The WVU Medicine Children’s Neurodevelopmental Center offers outpatient treatment for children who have been diagnosed with growth and development disabilities of the brain and central nervous system. Our multidisciplinary team focuses on treating the whole child and meeting their individual needs as symptoms unfold with the child’s growth.

Physical, cognitive, and communicative abilities are affected with neurodevelopmental disorders, and our highly trained providers develop a treatment plan designed to improve your child’s function at school, at home, and in their community.

Treatments and Services

We provide each child with comprehensive evaluation and follow-up care while coordinating their treatment with a variety of WVU Medicine neurodevelopmental experts. Our therapy services for children and their families include:

  • Applied behavior analysis
  • Assistive technology training
  • Family resource counseling
  • Occupational therapy
  • Physical therapy
  • Speech language therapy

Applied behavior analysis (ABA) provides intensive, one-on-one behavior and learning therapies for a limited number of children ages two to six years old who have been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder.

The goal of ABA therapy is to increase language and communication skills, improve focus and memory, and reduce any behavior problems. A board-certified behavior analyst and trained behavior technicians develop an individualized treatment plan for each child. At least two therapists work with your child each session. Parents are required to be involved in treatment sessions to enable their child’s success.

Our ABA clinic serves children from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm five days a week, excluding holidays and staff training days. Depending on your child’s needs, full-time or part-time scheduling is available between 12 and 30 hours a week.
