DBP Application Guidance

The purpose of this program is to enhance the behavioral, psychosocial, and developmental components of pediatric care by supporting DBP fellowship programs to prepare DBP fellows for leadership roles as teachers, investigators, and clinicians and to provide pediatric practitioners, residents, and medical students, with essential biopsychosocial knowledge and clinical expertise.

This will result in advancing the field by training health care professionals to use valid and reliable screening and diagnostic tools, in addition to providing evidence-based interventions for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and other developmental disabilities (DD).
