Billy E. Beechler, MD, FAAP

Assistant Professor of Clinical Pediatrics

Bio

I'm a board certified developmental-behavioral pediatrician working in the Riley Child Development Center (RCDC). At the RCDC I work as part of an interdisciplinary team evaluating and treating children with neurodevelopmental disorders. As an assistant professor of pediatrics with the IU School of Medicine, I train pediatrics, internal medicine, and psychiatry residents as they rotate through the RCDC. During my years working with children and their families at the RCDC, nothing has frustrated me more than seeing children who would have benefited from early intervention services and not received them because their physician was unaware of the services available or, worse, their physician took a “wait and see” approach to developmental delays. Through the RCDC’s relationships with the IU School of Medicine, the Indiana AAP, the Indiana Association for Infant and Toddler Mental Health, and the Autism Society - Indiana Chapter, I have been given opportunities to both gain insights about early intervention and to share what I have learned about screening for neurodevelopmental disabilities with diverse audiences.
