We’re seeking a Board Certified/Board Eligible Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrician to join the expanding team at Siskin Children’s Institute’s newest practice located in Nashville, Tennessee. Open since January 2020, this facility offers medical services including developmental assessments and treatment as well as applied behavior analysis therapy for children with special needs.
Based in Chattanooga, Siskin Children’s Institute is a nonprofit organization with a mission to increase access to assessment, diagnosis, and early intervention for children with developmental disorders including autism spectrum disorder, ADHD, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy and genetic disorders. The institute, which serves more than 3,500 children annually from its Chattanooga and Nashville clinics, was named 2020 Nonprofit of the Year by the Chattanooga Chamber of Commerce.
The organization’s expansion into the Nashville area has shortened wait times and reduced the distance that families of special needs children have to travel to see developmental pediatricians who can provide the care their children deserve.
You’ll join a group of specialists and experts in the areas of developmental pediatrics, behavior psychology, and applied behavior analysis, all of whom work collaboratively with families and take an interdisciplinary approach to identification and intervention for neurodevelopmental concerns. Leading the Nashville practice is Dr. James Van Decar, a neurodevelopmental pediatrician with more than 30 years of experience helping children with special needs and an expert in the evaluation, diagnosis, and management of developmental disabilities in children. Dr. Van Decar was joined by Dr. Stephanie Klees in the growing practice this fall.
You’ll love living in Nashville, one of the country’s hottest cities and ranked No. 17 on U.S. News & World Report’s Best Places to Live based on quality of life, job market, value and desirability of the area. Nashville is also recognized by U.S. News as the #12 Best Places to Retire, #1 Best Places to Live in Tennessee and #23 Fastest-Growing Places. Dubbed “Music City, U.S.A.,” Nashville enjoys a booming and diverse economy, lower cost of living than other major U.S. cities, great neighborhoods and an entertainment scene that’s second to none, from the Grand Old Opry, Country Music Hall of Fame and a slew of live music venues to professional sports, world-class museums, even a thriving craft beer industry. Nashville’s central location puts you within two to four hours driving distance of Atlanta, Chattanooga, Knoxville, the Great Smoky Mountains and the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. Plus, as a resident of Tennessee, you’ll pay no state income tax.
