Senior Physician - Pediatrician (Part-Time)
Hourly Rate $84.74

Aging and Disability Services Division (ADSD) Nevada Early Intervention Services (NEIS) is accepting resumes for a
Senior Physician - Pediatrician position in Las Vegas, Nevada. The division is seeking to fill this unclassified, part-time
position (20.24 hours per week). ADSD provides an atmosphere of innovative thinking, teamwork, friendly co-workers,
and promotes a positive work environment. The mission of the ADSD is to provide leadership and advocacy in the planning,
development and delivery of a high quality, comprehensive support service system across the lifespan to allow all of
Nevada's elders, children and adults with disabilities or special health care needs, to live independent, meaningful, and
dignified lives to the greatest extent possible. The responsibility of ADSD is to ensure the provision of effective support
and services to meet the needs of individuals and families.

Early Intervention Services - We provide services to children ages 0-3 years with developmental delays and disabilities
who are eligible for Part C services under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). In addition, we support
children and families with diagnostics including autism.

Direct Services - The Pediatrician will complete physical evaluations of children, recommend appropriate additional
services, and discuss with the family the child's developmental functioning, nutrition consultations, assessment results,
recommendations, and outcomes.

Autism Diagnostics - The Pediatrician may complete diagnostic appointments when a child falls on the spectrum. We have
a comprehensive team that will complete a battery of assessments, audio evaluation, and Autism Diagnostic Observation
Schedule (ADOS). The pediatrician and team members discuss and explain to the family a synopsis of all the assessments.
The pediatrician will formalize the diagnosis during the process. We have a qualified staff member that attends each
appointment with the family to ensure there is continuity and support during this time.

Teaching - Pediatric residents from the University Nevada Reno and University Nevada Las Vegas School of Medicine
rotate through NEIS for their developmental and behavioral rotation. It is expected that this position supports this
collaboration with the university and residents to strengthen the knowledge base of future first line practitioners. Trainings
from the Pediatrician will be offered to staff and/or parents 1-2 times per year on relevant topics.

Community Outreach - The Pediatrician will provide community outreach to local pediatrician offices, medical groups,
and hospitals to support collaboration and continuity of care. In addition, this may also encompass sitting on a statewide
commission or coalition to support stakeholder needs and state initiatives.

Future Opportunities - As the State of Nevada continues to redefine efficiencies and effective public health services, there
are opportunities for visionary leadership to help pave the pathways. Opportunities may include developing a single point
of entry process for children with special health care needs that are eligible for one or multiple state programs. Another
may be assisting in redefining roles and relationships to better serve children and families through a merging of separate Early Intervention Services
