Dr. Coulter's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Coulter "Dr. David Coulter became interested in neurology when he was in high school and wanted to learn how the brain works. He entered medicine in order to take care of patients with brain problems, choosing neurology over psychiatry because it seemed like a better fit for him. Dr. Coulter's professional and academic activities are concentrated on the issues related to neurodevelopmental disabilities (NDD), particularly epilepsy, cerebral palsy, intellectual disability (what used to be called mental retardation) and autism. In June 2004 he became the President of the American Association on Mental Retardation (AAMR). As president, Dr. Coulter began the process that led to changing the name of the organization to the American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (AAIDD) in 2008. He was also a co-author on the official document that changed the name from mental retardation to intellectual disability. Dr. Coulter has had a long-standing interest in ethics and spirituality related to neurodevelopmental disabilities. He has written many articles on the treatment of epilepsy in children with other neurodevelopmental disabilities, and this continues to be a large part of his clinical practice. He has been the neurologist at a school for autism for the past 12 years, where he also treats many children who had seizures. At BCH Dr. Coulter is part of the team caring for children with cerebral palsy and continue to participate in continuing education activities on that topic."
