Dedicated to those with special needs, one child at a time ...
Welcome to the office of Stuart Developmental Pediatrics (SDP)! This is a private pediatric practice that specializes in the care of children with special needs. Dr. Scott Stuart is a board certified Developmental Pediatrician who has many years of experience while serving in the U.S. Navy prior to beginning practicing in Central Texas. This practice is predominantly consultative and diagnostic in nature. No direct interventional services are provided at SDP, aside from medication management. All evaluations and recommendations are based upon best practices and evidenced based medicine models. The goal is to provide a comprehensive family-centered program of care designed specifically for each child. All evaluations include an in-depth objective assessment to make a determination of the child’s strengths and challenges. From there, coordination of care to access services in your region may begin.
The mission of SDP is to provide Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics services to children with special needs. The three primary areas of services include:
1. Developmental Pediatrics Medical Consultation
2. Adoptive Medicine Consultation with expertise regarding Asian Adoptions

As a general pediatrician in the trenches I can't speak highly enough of Dr Stuart. - M McDonough
Dr. Stuart was a godsend for me in 2009 when he diagnosed my triplet daughters with Autism. I am eternally grateful every day that he was there to explain to me exactly what was going on with my daughters and helped me keep my sanity. He not only helped me get the resources and help that was needed but also looked into my well being too. He's the greatest and to this day I will forever be grateful! C. Roddy
His passion for helping the children is unbelievable. You are definitely in great hands with Dr. Stuart. I saw it myself firsthand when I assisted in his visits to Yokosuka, Japan. Thank you Dr. Stuart for helping our kiddos. - S. Ferrer
I worked with Dr. Stuart as a fellow pediatrician who referred patients to him and as a the parent of one of his patients. As a referring physician, I and my patients' families were very happy with the care he provided. His evaluations and recommendations were very helpful and useful. As a parent, I cannot say enough. He is wonderful with kids. His evaluation of my son with incredibly thorough and specific, and Dr. Stuart reviewed everything with me and answered all of my questions in a caring and supportive manner. When we moved and Dr. Stuart's eval was reviewed at my son's new school, they were amazed at how complete it was. They didn't have to do any additional testing, because Dr. Stuart had done everything already. They kept saying that Dr. Stuart's evaluation was the most complete evaluation they had ever seen. I cannot recommend him strongly enough!
