The 22q Clinic is part of Seattle Children’s Craniofacial Center. Our 50 specialists in 19 different fields meet weekly to discuss children with complex needs and decide on the best care plan for each child.
A craniofacial pediatrician, medical geneticist, genetic counselor, nurse, family service coordinator and social worker will work closely with your family. They manage your child’s care and make sure all your questions are answered.
Our 22q Clinic can easily form a team with the right experts to care for your child’s specific needs. These may include an audiologist; dietitian; ear, nose and throat specialist (otolaryngologist); feeding therapist; psychiatrist; and speech and language pathologist (SLP). They create a personalized plan of care for your child.
If needed, your child will see experts in other departments at Seattle Children’s, for problems affecting their heart, mental health, hormones, nervous system, stomach and intestines, bones, kidneys and infection-fighting immune system. We work together, and with you and your family’s doctor, to care for your child.
