Psychosocial Aspects of Medical Conditions Affecting Endocrine Function Variations in Physical Growth and Development
Suggested Pre-Referral Evaluation and Management Guidelines
Child Behavioral Health accepts referrals (newborn to 18 years) for evaluation and treatment of stress or adjustment difficulties associated with having an endocrine condition affecting growth and development. Examples include Turner syndrome, Klinefelter syndrome, congenital adrenal hyperplasia, short stature due to growth hormone deficiency or other conditions, and delayed or early puberty.
In addition to the more common variations in physical growth and development, this service also provides educational and comprehensive psychological services for children born with a disorder of sexual development (DSD), conditions present at birth involving atypical sex chromosomes, gonads or sex anatomy.
Suggested Additional Test/Management Prior to Specialty Visit
Medical evaluation of cause(s) and review of treatment options for the endocrine condition.
