Beginning May 1, 2016, the Civitan - Sparks Clinics joined the Department of Pediatrics! This will now align these clinical and training efforts within the Department of Pediatrics and specifically with the new Division of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics (DDBP). Dr. Fred Biasini and colleagues will continue to provide interdisciplinary evaluations for children with neurodevelopmental disabilities and serve as a long and short-term training experience for many disciplines such as social work, audiology, psychology, occupational and physical therapy, speech/language pathology, nutrition, nursing, pediatric dentistry, and medicine. The Clinics are an important component of the Alabama University Center of Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCEDD), and are the home base of the MCH Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities training program (LEND).Clinics include the Child Development Clinic, Behavioral Assessment Clinic, Psychoeducational Clinic, and Autism Clinic. Located in the UAB Community Health Building at 930 20th Street, the Civitan-Sparks Clinics also includes Sparks Pediatrics, a primary care clinic that serves healthy children as well as children with complex medical and social needs. Dr. Snehal Khatri, a developmental pediatrician, leads this team. All of these professionals are strongly committed to serving children with neurodevelopmental disabilities, and we welcome them to the Department of Pediatrics!
