Neonatal Follow-Up Clinic

Prematurity can cause problems for babies all throughout their lives. We have experience and expertise in monitoring high-risk infants from birth to 2 years old with developmental disorders. Early intervention is critical to their successful development.

We have one focus: kids.

The earlier a baby is born, the more likely he is to have health problems. Some of these problems may not show up for several years, even into adulthood. Finding and treating health problems as early as possible can help babies lead longer, healthier lives.

We monitor your baby for developmental problems, and partner with you to help coordinate referrals to community resources. Our team includes board-certified developmental and behavioral pediatricians, occupational therapists and social worker.

What to expect.

Early intervention is critical to your child's development. That's why we meet with you several times to monitor your child's growth, development and behavior.

We focus on the development of the nervous system, including evaluating your child's motor skills such as smiling, sitting and walking, and muscle tone and positioning. Speech and behavioral development are also important during follow-up, as well as periodic hearing and eye assessments.

As your child grows, she may require speech therapy and/or physical therapy.
