Emory Neurodevelopment and Exposure Clinic (ENEC)

The Emory Neurodevelopment and Exposure Clinic (ENEC) was established to serve children with prenatal exposure to alcohol, drugs, or other substances.  As part of the Division of Child, Adolescent and Young Adult Psychiatry, we provide differential diagnosis of effects of prenatal exposure, referrals and consults, and behavioral and educational intervention with children and families. ENEC is the only multidisciplinary center of its kind in the Southeast.  We were formerly known as the Fetal Alcohol and Drug Exposure Clinic.

Who We Serve

The clinic serves children from birth through 21 years with a history of prenatal exposure to alcohol, drugs, and other substances.  Staff members evaluate and treat problems related to development or developmental delay, behavior problems, educational issues or school problems, and transition to adulthood issues.  We accept all forms of Medicaid and some private insurance; please check with the patient care coordinator about specific insurance plans.

Services

When a child is exposed to alcohol, illegal drugs or prescription medications, the child’s physical and intellectual development can be affected. ENEC is the only multidisciplinary center treating children with effects of exposure in the Southeast. At ENEC, children are assessed by specialists in several different fields such as psychology, education, and pediatrics. The staff then confers about the diagnosis and makes recommendations for the child. Families are invited back to the clinic after the evaluation so they can discuss results and recommendations provided by the team.

  • Neurodevelopmental and psychological testing of children from infancy through adolescence
  • Educational consultation, testing, and cognitive rehabilitation with Special Education
  • Medical and genetic evaluations
  • Therapy and interventions including parent coaching and behavior management
  • Medications review and management
