Welcome to the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS), Department of Pediatrics, Section of Developmental-Behavioral and Rehabilitative Pediatrics.  Our clinical, educational, advocacy and research activities are integrated into the campus of Arkansas Children’s Hospital (ACH), Arkansas Children’s Hospital Research Institute (ACHRI) and in consultation with Arkansas’ Department of Human Services.  Since ACH is the sole pediatric tertiary, quaternary and specialty care center in Arkansas and segments of the surrounding states, we serve a large, diverse population.

As part of our commitment to comprehensive pediatric care, we have assembled an outstanding faculty with expertise in all areas of pediatric medicine.  Our faculty, fellows and staff are committed to enhancing the health of all children through excellence in clinical services, education, research, and service.

Our mission is to provide state of the art care, education and research for children and families at-risk for or having Special Health Care Needs.  This group of children and families includes those with motor, communication, social and behavioral challenges.  The goal for each child and their caregivers is to aid them toward self-determination and functional independence. Our core values of integrity, respect, teamwork, creativity and excellence are central to our approach in accomplishing our mission.

On behalf of our faculty, fellows, staff and partners at ACH, ACHRI and AR DHS, I invite you to experience for yourself the components and programs of the Section of Developmental-Behavioral & Rehabilitative Pediatrics.  Join us and make a difference for children.
