Neurodevelopmental and Behavioral Phenotyping Service

The Neurodevelopmental and Behavioral Phenotyping Service conducts developmental and behavioral evaluations on individuals with a variety of neurodevelopmental problems, focusing on young children and individuals of all ages with significant cognitive or social impairments. The goal of the service is to provide behavioral phenotyping for natural history and treatment studies of autism spectrum disorder and genetic disorders associated with intellectual disability, and contribute to outcome measure development for these conditions. Evaluations integrate NIH patient history with results from individually-administered standardized psychological tests, and can be completed based on clinical referral or protocol driven research questions.

If you are an NIH Clinical Center researcher or clinician interested in requesting a consultation from the NBPS please see: http://cc0tintranettst.cc.nih.gov/pedstaff/how_to/psychconsult.html.
