About Our Program:

The Neurology and Neurodevelopmental Medicine Program (NMP) is one of three programs within the Phelps Center for Cerebral Palsy and Neurodevelopmental Medicine.

Children, adolescents and adults with a range of developmental disorders including cerebral palsy, intellectual disabilities, communication disorders and autism are evaluated and followed longitudinally in the Neurodevelopmental Medicine Program (NMP) by neurodevelopmental pediatricians, pediatric nurse practitioners and physiatrists. As part of the initial evaluation, special attention is given to diagnosis, with referrals to a wide range of medical specialists at Kennedy Krieger Institute and Johns Hopkins, including genetics, ophthalmology and neuroimaging. Additionally, appropriate referrals are made to rehabilitative specialists at Kennedy Krieger Institute in pediatric orthopedics, pediatric gastroenterology (GI), physical therapy, occupational therapy, communications sciences and disorders (speech language pathology, audiology and assistive technology), nutrition and social work. Mental health services are utilized if required. Consultations are also made to Johns Hopkins specialty clinics, including neurosurgery, pulmonary, urology and hematology as required. Depending on the identified diagnosis, ongoing care may be provided in the Phelps Center or in other appropriate programs throughout the Kennedy Krieger Institute.
