Our Services

The UC-LEND clinic offers primary and multidisciplinary care aimed at improving health care and quality of life for individuals with neurodevelopmental and related conditions, of all ages, and their families. Our team specializes in, but is not limited to, seeing individuals with autism, ADHD, anxiety, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, speech and language delay, developmental delay and intellectual disability. Further, we are a neuro and gender-affirming clinic who also welcome those at a cross section of neurodivergence and gender dysphoria. All that is needed is a question about neurodiversity, and our team will be more than happy to assist in finding the right provider (or providers) for you.

Care Coordination:

Once patient and family goals are identified, a provider (or providers) will deliver specialized and quality care by addressing ones’ unique needs. These providers also depend on our diverse and dedicated team to fill in gaps in the plan of care.
