Many children with Individual Education Plans (IEP) have related health issues. Whether ADHD, autism, Downs Syndrome, or a myriad of other diagnoses, it can be important for the health care provider and school to work together to ensure the best possible outcome for each student. In Boston, access to Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics can be challenging due to a shortage of specialists. In the IEP Clinic, run by Soukaina Adolphe, MD and Ivys Fernandez, JD who specialize in delivering primary care to children with special needs, patients with IEPs will have a one-time appointment with the provider-specialist to review their IEP and medical history, and then be fast-tracked to a developmental and behavioral pediatric specialist.
