SIG purpose/mission:
The Developmental Behavioral Pediatrics SIG provides a forum within the Academic Pediatric Association (APA) for members to share research (and ideas for research), innovative educational programs, and advocacy efforts with respect to developmental behavioral pediatrics in primary care and in subspecialty care.

Current SIG goals:
1. To foster interest and discussion in emerging areas relevant to developmental behavioral pediatrics. 
2. To support education and research in developmental behavioral pediatrics in primary care and in subspecialty care.

Annual summary:
Our topic for the annual meeting of the Developmental Behavioral Pediatrics SIG at the 2018 PAS meeting was "Telemedicine in Developmental Behavioral Pediatrics."  Neelkamal Soares, MD, from Western Michigan University gave an overview on "Telehealth in Developmental Behavioral Pediatrics.  Diane Langkamp, MD, MPH from Akron Children's Hospital presented on "Telemedicine –treating acute illnesses in children with developmental disabilities in a school setting.”  Marilyn Espe-Sherwindt, Ph.D. from Akron Children's Hospital spoke about “Telemedicine and Early Intervention” with a particular focus on young children with autism.  This was a great opportunity for discussion of the application of this technology to the field of Developmental Behavioral Pediatrics.
