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

The earlier a baby is born, the more likely they are 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 your child lead a longer, healthier life.

We will meet with you several times to monitor their growth, development and behavior. Our focus is 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, as well as periodic hearing and eye assessments. As your child grows, they may also require speech therapy and/or physical therapy.

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