Novant Health Developmental & Behavioral Pediatrics – Eastover is here to provide the care your child needs for common to complex conditions that affect behavior and development. Our services start with a detailed assessment of your child’s condition and symptoms, leading to as accurate a diagnosis as possible. Once that is achieved, our providers will work with you to evaluate strategies to manage and treat your child.

Conditions our providers address include:

  • Developmental delays with or without symptoms that affect behavior
  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD, including preschool and complex ADHD, as well as consultations for medication)
  • Diagnosis of autism spectrum disorders and medication to help manage behavior
  • Genetic syndromes and abnormalities with behavioral symptoms

Our goal is to provide you with the best help available for your child. If we identify a condition during your child’s evaluation that is better treated by a provider in another specialty, we will make needed referrals.
