Lina Patel, PsyD joined the Sie Center for Down Syndrome at Children’s Hospital Colorado as Director of Psychology in November of 2012. She has extensive experience in treatment planning, parent support, diagnostic evaluation, and intervention. As she believes that behavioral challenges arise for many different reasons, she prides herself in coordination of care with community providers, educational supports, medical team members, and caregivers.  Additionally, she conducts clinical research to better understand how neurodevelopment impacts behaviors. Outside of her clinical work, she has presented to numerous organizations in the community with a focus on understanding the behaviors of individuals with Down syndrome.
