Clinic For Special Children

Welcome to the Clinic for Special Children, Wilmington’s first and only pediatric practice offering Integrative Medicine for children.

Offering an unprecedented level of attentive and personalized care, our Integrative Medical Team consists of our Board Certified Neurodevelopmental Pediatrician and Patient Liaison/Case Manager. Our team celebrates your child’s individuality with customized care plans that optimize wellness and restore health.

The Clinic for Special Children was originally founded by Dr. Karen Harum, MD, to provide accurate diagnosis, whole child treatments, specialty care and consultation for all children with developmental disabilities and behavioral problems including ADD, ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorders. Routine pediatric care is also provided for typically developing children.

We believe in treating the whole child by addressing their physical, emotional, social and environmental needs. This integrative holistic approach combines modern western medicine and evidence-based complementary and alternative healing modalities. By integrating traditional medical diagnostics and pharmaceutical therapies with Functional medical therapies, we feel that we can provide the best care possible for your family. We look forward to working with you!

Our vision at the Clinic for Special Children is to improve the quality of children’s lives by providing the resources for accurate diagnosis and comprehensive holistic treatments for general pediatrics and a wide variety of developmental disorders. An integral part of that vision is educating parents and extended family on the sundry of whole child healing protocols that Dr. Harum has created for special needs children over the past 20 years. With epidemic numbers of children being diagnosed with learning disabilities and Autism Spectrum Disorders, Vibrant Children was launched in 2012 as a international outreach program to educate and train parents and families raising children that have been diagnosed with these developmental disabilities.

Dr. Harum has been my son’s neurodevelopment pediatrician for many years. She is very kind, thorough, and has a genuine appreciation for my son as a person ,and as a patient, which is evident in her quality of care. I appreciate how she takes the time to understand my concerns and share with me in both my son’s successes and his challenges. She is a gift to the autism community and a credit to her profession and I feel so very fortunate to have her in our life.
