Neonatal Neurodevelopmental Follow-up Clinic

The Neonatal Neurodevelopmental Follow-Up Clinic assesses babies who have been admitted to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) or Cardiac Critical Care Unit (CCCU) and may be at risk for developmental issues due to reasons such as prematurity or serious medical problems during delivery or after birth.

Certain other infants will be followed because they are involved in research studies.

Vision

Start Together.  Build Possibilities.  

Mission

Our team of neurodevelopmental experts provides personalized care to optimize outcomes for medically complex neonates and their families through the integration of research, education and community collaborations. 

 

One of our goals is to provide continuity of care throughout the Follow-up course. To achieve this goal, a practitioner will be assigned from discharge to assess the child and support the family at each follow-up visit. Our practitioners have a Master’s degree with advanced preparation in developmental and neonatal issues. Other members of the team are available to see your child when needed.

Infants can also be referred to the clinic by a family doctor or pediatrician if there are concerns about development. Learn more about how to refer a patient.

We are here to:

  • Promote the emotional and physical development of child and family
  • Provide parents with information about early childhood development
  • Participate in the education of health care professionals
  • Increase knowledge of developmental outcomes through research
  • Improve the quality of care in the NICU
  • Share information with community partners
