Yay or nay?
Guess it depends on what you're looking for. My ds has one and he is great with letting us know all the different therapies and resources out here. DS only sees him every 6mos and each time we retake testing to see where he's at. I'd say the biggest help with our dev. ped. is the knowledge of resources and being very thorough with his ongoing evaluations.
Yes. My son has seen two developmental pediatricians (we had to switch when we moved) and they have been wonderful! But, we do not see her very often. Most of the time we see his regular pediatrician. The developmental is helpful in finding resources, checking his progress, or other things that a pediatrician may not have knowledge in.
A dev. ped. is who diagnosed R. We will see him every 3-6 months as needed right now to make sure she's progressing like he predicts she will. He is also the one who will make sure all is inline for our military stuff, and insurance.
