The Dan L Duncan Programs at the Children’s Learning Institute were created through the generosity of the Dan L Duncan family. Their mission is to enhance children’s opportunities for successful living by providing them with individualized research-based clinical services. A highly unique aspect of our clinics is our focus on finding the most effective approaches for correcting child developmental and learning problems through a clinic structure that allows our research to inform our practice.
“The decision to establish the Dan L Duncan Children’s Neurodevelopmental Clinic was an easy choice for our family. Our children are our future. My family has been very blessed in a lot of ways. Through this gift, we established a place where families can get the professional expertise and guidance they need without having to go through the challenges we experienced.” – Randa Duncan Williams
The Dan L Duncan Children’s Neurodevelopment Clinic provides comprehensive assessments of children, adolescents, and young adults who are thought to have developmental or behavioral problems, autism spectrum disorders, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and learning disabilities such as dyslexia.
The UT Physicians Pediatric Center for Autism and Related Conditions recognizes that the challenges faced by children with developmental concerns are complex neurodevelopmental issues in which multiple developmental concerns likely overlap and require a comprehensive look at every child. This understanding guides our approach to utilizing patient-centered, evidence-based methods in our diagnostic evaluations and our treatment recommendations. We are a multi-disciplinary team that includes developmental and behavioral pediatrics, child psychology, and speech and language pathology.
Neuropsychological Services for Neurological Conditions Clinic evaluates both children and adults with a wide variety of learning disabilities as well as illnesses affecting the central nervous system. Our clinical practice serves children ages six and up, along with adults. Patients are referred from neurologists, neurosurgeons, and other medical practitioners in Houston and the surrounding area.
Our mission is to enhance children’s opportunities for successful living by providing them with individualized, research-based assessment and clinical services in reading.
Our programs target both struggling students as well as students with grade level academic skills.
Throughout the school year, our school-based programs provide early intervention to students who are at-risk for or who are experiencing reading difficulties as well as enrichment programs for students with grade level academic skills.
During the summer break, AERO programs provide hands-on tutoring in reading to help children prepare for the upcoming school year. These targeted tutoring programs can be instrumental in helping children develop the skills they need to be successful.
Now all the benefits of AERO tutoring are also available through online tutoring. Trained and screened tutors are able to provide your student with 40-minute 1-on-1 sessions, using curriculum and instruction selected to meet your student’s particular needs.
