Developmental Pediatrics

Centra's Developmental Pediatrics Service provides  evaluation and follow-up of developmentally at risk or delayed infants and children.  Our outpatient services, housed in the Autism and Developmental Pediatrics Center, help children with learning and behavioral problems and support parents and children as they develop.

Dr. Brennan specializes in the evaluation and follow-up of developmentally at risk or delayed infants and toddlers.  She has been providing these services to area children and their families since 1984.  In the Center, Dr. Brennan works with Jitendra Annapareddy, M.D., child/adolescent psychiatrist and director of the center, who provides assessment and treatment for autism spectrum and other disorders. This new partnership offers seamless services with Dr. Brennan seeing preemies and up and Dr. Annapareddy treating children age three and older.  

For referrals and appointments, please call 434-200-3047.


Baxter Black, Dr. Brennan's Labrador retriever, carries a Centra ID and accompanies her to work. He is certified by Therapy Dogs International and has earned the Canine Good Citizenship Certification. Born in 2009, he has been a therapy dog since 2012.

His presence is calming and relaxing, and he puts a lot of children at ease, said Dr. Brennan
