As the director of a program aimed at training health care professionals to treat children with developmental disabilities, Kathleen Braden, MD, is all too familiar with physicians' deficits in caring for these special patient populations. As one example, she recalls a young woman in the emergency department with status epilepticus. Despite her unremitting seizure, the woman was triaged to the side for a long time. Her family became very upset, and tried to alert emergency personnel to the fact that she needed immediate medication to prevent severe brain damage.
