Personalized care

The clinic offers patients and their families the most advanced care in mid-Missouri and is designed to provide patients the opportunity to see multiple specialty providers in one day at one location.

We specialize in seeing patients ages 6 months through 21 years of age. The clinic operates on the first Friday of each month.

During clinic, your child will be evaluated by our team and a personalized care assessment plan will be provided. We also work closely with your child’s pediatrician to keep them updated about your child’s visits at our clinic so he or she can continue to provide your child the best care.

Team approach

Our team approach that provides personalized care includes physicians and therapists from both The Thompson Center and University of Missouri Health Care. Your child may be seen by a variety of specialists including:

  • Developmental pediatricians
  • Audiologists
  • Endocrinologists
  • Physical therapists
  • Speech and language pathologists 
  • Social work

These specialists are trained to treat children with Down syndrome and to address any health concerns often associated with Down syndrome such as vision or thyroid conditions.

Because we’re part of an academic health system, we’re also able to connect you with any additional specialists your child may need to see.
