Neonatal Developmental Follow-Up Clinic

The behavioral health clinicians within the Neonatal Developmental Follow-Up Clinic provide thorough developmental assessments for infants who were once in the:

  • Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (ICU)
  • Pediatric ICU
  • Cardiac ICU

Neonatal Development Issues We Treat

Our behavioral health experts periodically assess infants until 24 months of age with many conditions that can impair later development, such as:

  • Premature birth
  • Low birth weight
  • Intraventricular hemorrhage
  • Hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy
  • Heart disease
  • Neonatal abstinence syndrome

We also make sure that each child receives the most effective, up-to-date neonatal development care.
