Pediatrician prescribes Special Olympics for children

Dr. Rolanda Maxim encourages parents and doctors to take a different perspective in helping children with developmental challenges improve their social, gross motor and communications skills. And she thinks Special Olympics is a program that doctors and parents can agree on.

That’s exactly why Dr. Maxim, medical director of the Center for Autism Spectrum Disorders at the Knights of Columbus Developmental Center at SSM Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center in St. Louis, wrote a prescription for Special Olympics Missouri for eight-year-old Morgan Davidson.

“We appreciate Special Olympics because, instead of addressing problems with medications, we can use natural ways of improving someone’s life,” Dr. Maxim explains.
