Child Development

This information is useful for children
An infant who may have child development issues crawls on the floor.

It’s a joy to witness the seemingly miraculous transformation of a helpless newborn into an active, curious child and, ultimately, a capable and independent adult. No two children develop in exactly the same way, but the phases of child development are, for a healthy child, logical and predictable.

There is plenty that parents can do to support their child’s optimal development, but there’s no advantage to rushing it, says Joseph Woolston, MD, a Yale Medicine Child Study Center psychiatrist.

Clinical Trials

New treatments for many conditions are tested in clinical trials, which ultimately bring lifesaving new drugs and devices to the patients who need them most. By participating in a clinical trial, you may get access to the most advanced treatments for your condition, and help determine their benefits for future patients.
