The field of developmental and behavioral pediatrics has been steadily gaining prominence within general pediatrics and in the past two decades has gradually developed into a separate subspecialty. The goal of this new subspecialty is to foster understanding and to promote optimal development of children and families through research, education, clinical care, and advocacy. There is now a three-year fellowship program in developmental-behavioral pediatrics, with its first board examination anticipated in 2002.
