Welcome to the Children’s Wellness & Developmental Center, the practice of Kerri D’Onofrio, Nurse Practitioner.

Our goal is to provide you with a personalized and comprehensive evaluation to help you understand and learn about your child’s needs. We are committed to improving the health and well-being of children and families affected by developmental and behavioral disorders. Through experience and training we provide diagnosis and individual treatment plans, with the use of traditional and complementary treatment options.

We pride ourselves in treating the whole person, not just the diagnosis. We provide a loving and caring environment for families that face very challenging situations. We pride ourselves on taking the time to listen and develop a plan for the child and the family. We strongly believe that each child is an individual and no two children are alike, therefore no two treatment plans can be alike. We strongly believe in a natural approach to handle the needs of the child, by using biomedical treatments options and/or medication as needed.

We believe early diagnosis for individual children affected by Autism, ADHD and developmental delays, along with intensive therapies, complementary treatments, and medical intervention is the key to the child’s best prognosis.

Autism can be a very scary diagnosis, but we understand and take the time to help families come up with a treatment plan that will work for the individual family. Autism is a neurological and biological disorder that typically affects children. In the state of New Jersey Autism currently affects 1 in every 50 children, nationwide 1 in every 68 children. At the Children’s Wellness & Developmental Center we specialize in early diagnosis for Autism. We believe that early detection and early interventions give the child the best possible outcome.
