Special Needs Support in Costa Mesa, Westminster and Irvine, Orange County, CA
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) defines the medical home as a model of care that is accessible, family-centered, continuous, comprehensive, coordinated, compassionate and culturally effective and is the source of primary care. Caring for children with complex medical needs can be a daunting task, but with proper thought and planning, it can be a very rewarding experience.
Here at DR2KIDS with pediatrician Dr. Tandon and her staff, we help you improve healthcare use, including decreased emergency department visits, and increase health-promoting behaviors such as family reading, sleep hygiene, helmet use and decreased screen time. Like the infant who will not be held or the toddler who cannot speak or behave normally, children with special needs may exhibit disruptive behavior that causes problems at home and at school. Then there are children who are just “different” and have a hard time making friends. They often feel left out in social situations.
At DR2KIDS, we work with infants, children, adolescents and teens who have developmental, behavioral and emotional issues that can interfere with their growth, learning and ability to function in family or social environments. We also work with children who have disabilities that prevent them from participating in normal activities.
