Developmental Disabilities and Autism
Outpatient Pediatrics Program
Running Time: 6:50
Good Shepherd’s Pediatrics Program offers comprehensive evaluative and therapeutic services for children who have or are suspected of having developmental disabilities, including autism.
The Pediatrics Program is designed to assess your child’s skill level through an evaluation by a developmental pediatrician and a team of physical and occupational therapists, as well as speech/language pathologists. Our expert staff members carefully determine your child’s functional needs to identify the best therapeutic options available.
Good Shepherd’s Pediatrics Program is home to the only two board-certified developmental pediatricians in the Lehigh Valley. Karen Senft, MD, and Nandini Bhargav Iyengar, MD, work with Louise Zarrow, MSN, CPNP, to ensure children receive accurate diagnoses and the best treatment available, while helping them reach their full potential.

Good Shepherd's Pediatric Program is accepting new outpatient therapy patients who have a prescription from their pediatrician. However, due to the length of our waiting list for evaluations by a developmental pediatrician, Good Shepherd Pediatrics is not currently accepting new patients who wish to make an appointment with a developmental pediatrician. Good Shepherd's Pediatrics Program remains committed to providing inpatient and outpatient services for its patients.
