Helping future neurologists and pediatricians identify early warning signs and make referrals
The Carruth Center and The Parish School have been selected by UT Health's Children's Learning Institute as a site for resident neurologists and pediatricians to visit as part of their training rotations.
Medical students routinely visit classrooms and therapy rooms to learn about identification and intervention techniques for children with language-based learning differences. By inviting residents to our campus, The Parish School and The Carruth Center help future neurologists and pediatricians identify, first-hand, early warning signs and how to make appropriate referrals to parents in need of early intervention for their children.
The goal of the rotations is that residents will gain an appreciation that educators and therapists, as well as primary care doctors, are members of a collaborative team that provide care for children who have communication delays and learning differences.
