Neurodevelopmental Outreach Clinics

Neurodevelopmental screenings and diagnoses are delivered by Pediatric Neurodevelopmental Specialists from the Children’s Hospital and Medical Center in Seattle and the University of Virginia Children’s Hospital.  These specialists offer screenings, evaluations, diagnoses, follow up referrals, recommendations for treatment and care, and information on early intervention and education programs, as needed. Sponsored by the State of Alaska, the providers and their teams travel annually to communities across Alaska. They are able to evaluate children from 12 months to 12 years old, and support local providers in meeting the developmental special health needs of infants and children in rural Alaska. 

Due to COVID-19, ongoing travel restrictions throughout Alaska are preventing in-person visits for the 2021, winter and spring clinics. Patients will be seen through telehealth, using a secure telehealth platform that connects families with the Neurodevelopment Specialists and the Parent Navigator. Families will be given help in accessing the telehealth platform and preparing for the visit, prior to the appointment. Additional information about medical services through telehealth is also available through the videos below.
