Brain, Development and Behaviour (BDB) is an integrated clinical network providing assessment and consultative services for children with complex developmental disabilities.

Brain, Development and Behaviour (BDB) is an integrated clinical network providing assessment and consultative services for children 0-17 years old with complex developmental disabilities requiring a multidisciplinary approach, including but not exhaustively:
The main role of the Audiology Department of the Montreal Children’s hospital is to evaluate hearing, and support children with hearing loss and their families. Hearing is always evaluated in the context of communication development and global development of the child.
We evaluate children from 0 to 18 years of age. They are referred to us for various reasons, such as parental concern, having failed a hearing screening, presenting a language or developmental delay, having ear infections or to monitor the hearing in view of a medical issue.
The Montreal Children’s Hospital’s Asthma Centre is dedicated to treating pediatric asthma in children aged 1 to 18 years old. We also treat many patients with recurrent viral wheezing, which is typical in toddlers and preschoolers.
