Children who had cardiac surgery during infancy may experience differences affecting their learning, thinking and movement (like their gross and fine motor) abilities. Developmental follow-up appointments are recommended by the American Heart Association and American Academy of Pediatrics to track your child’s growth and develop a plan to support their needs.
At Children's Health℠, we offer three clinics that monitor your child’s developmental progress over time and provide referrals as needed. From age 6 months through adulthood, your child will have access to a psychologist, neuropsychologist and a school services liaison. Together, these providers will help make sure your child has the resources and support they need.
