I am a developmental-behavioral pediatrician and Director of the Section of Behavioral Pediatrics in the Division of Child Development, Rehabilitation and Metabolic Disease at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. I am the Principal Investigator for the Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics Research Network which was formed in 2010. The goal of this Network is to conduct collaborative, interdisciplinary research in developmental and behavioral pediatrics that advances clinical practice, supports research training, and optimizes the health and functional status of children with developmental and behavioral problems and disorders, including children with autism spectrum disorders.
