Developmental disabilities expert witnesses may have varying types of experience, as the discipline pertains to several different fields. Developmental expert consulting may provide valuable information for cases involving such areas as pediatric neurology, developmental psychology, human development, clinical psychology, school operations and other facets of the education system, pediatric neuropsychology, disability examinations, vocational rehabilitation, psychiatry, pharmacology, transit civil rights, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), nutrition and diet, behavioral health, mental health, and many other related disciplines, as each may become the center of a developmental disabilities lawsuit.
Developmental disabilities expert witnesses are often experienced working with psychological and psychiatric issues, since developmental disabilities are treated and cared for by individuals working within the mental health field. Individuals with developmental disabilities may require long-term care, residential care, foster care, group homes, and assistance with independent living. Cases may also concern acts of negligence and other standard of care violations, which would be grounds for possible lawsuits.
Developmental disabilities experts may also have a background working with family counseling, divorce, and additional family-related issues. Some cases may involve brain injury, since such injuries may cause developmental problems. Experts may also have a focus in treating addiction, anxiety, schizophrenia, depression, seizures, and other areas of behavioral and mental health.
