About the Center for Developmental Disabilities

The goal of the Institute’s Center for Developmental Disabilities is to provide effective and compassionate medical management to people with developmental disabilities. The Center is one of the few hospital-supported primary care facilities for individuals with developmental disabilities of its kind in the U.S., and one of the only such centers in Queens.

The Center’s staff is trained in meeting the special needs of the developmentally disabled, including individuals with mental retardation, autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, traumatic brain injury and other disorders.

The Center’s director, Sebastian Avolese, M.D., has been committed to the care of this special population since 1982.

Clinical services offered at the Center include dentistry, ophthalmology, podiatry, psychiatry, epilepsy, neurology, urology, and
gynecology, most of which are located on site.
