In brief: Behavoir problems

An experienced pediatrician can begin a work-up of a child with behavior problems.
Depending on the severity of the issues with the child, a psychiatrist or psychologist may also need to be involved. If autism is suspected, then a developmental expert at a pediatric hospital can provide helpful information to discover why a child and family are struggling with certain behaviors.
