The Mailman Center for Child Development is an academic center at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine that addresses concerns of individuals with developmental disabilities and children with special health care needs through:

  • Research
  • Clinical service
  • Training for professionals
  • Parental workshops
  • Advocacy

We are one of the top 10 programs in the United States for children with neurodevelopmental disabilities and chronic illness. The Mailman Center is housed in a 9-story building with nearly 115,000 square feet of office, clinical, training, conference, and laboratory space and is located on the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Medical Center campus. The Mailman Center annually serves over 19,000 children, youths, and their families.

The Mailman Center for Child Development is an integral part of the Miller School of Medicine’s Department of Pediatrics. The Center offers extensive research facilities for education and contains everything needed to fulfill its mission of research, training, and services to children with special needs and their families.

The staff at the Center give special care to identifying the concerns and priorities of each individual and family. The family and professional staff then work closely to decide which of those services would best meet all family members’ needs.
