Our mission is to enhance children’s opportunities for successful living by providing individualized research-based clinical services.
The Dan L Duncan Children’s Neurodevelopmental Clinic at the Children’s Learning Institute is part of UT Physicians. We recognize that the challenges faced by children with developmental concerns are not always linked to a simple medical diagnosis. These 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. The clinic team is available for follow-ups to address needs at different stages of development, from infancy through young adulthood. Our clinic provides ongoing follow-up and consultation services to the greater Houston community and beyond.

“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 Neurodevelopmental Clinic has multiple developmental experts on staff. In many cases, any of these professionals can provide an excellent evaluation for your child. However, you may choose whom to work with based on personal preference or referral to a particular individual, or based on the areas of expertise and interest listed under each clinician’s staff bio. We work together to ensure that your child’s needs are addressed.
Our licensed psychologists (Drs. Assel, Child, Ewing-Cobbs, and Prasad) conduct comprehensive evaluations that include intellectual functioning, language, academic skills, executive functions, memory, attention, motor skills, and social-emotional adjustment. Following the evaluation, the clinicians will meet with the parents to review test findings and to make recommendations for treatment. Follow-up appointments are available for monitoring progress and response to interventions. It is recommended that your child be evaluated by one of our licensed psychologists if your primary concerns include:

The Dan L Duncan Children’s Neurodevelopmental Clinic transitioned to an electronic health record in May 2021. Epic, the new electronic health record, provides a powerful tool for connecting our health care providers with patients. We utilize Epic to streamline processes and provide patients greater ease in accessing their healthcare information through a new patient portal. If you have questions or concerns about this change, please feel free to reach out to the Clinic staff.
