The purpose of this program is to provide you and your family with an assessment of your child and to collect information about the outcome of children who were patients in the Children’s NICU so we can continue to improve what we do. In the program, your child’s progress is monitored at regular intervals. This allows us to assess how your child is doing and be able to identify any issues early on, before your child reaches school age to ensure that timely referrals can be made to your physician and other specialty providers. Unique to Children’s, the program also offers IQ testing with a clinical psychologist and sees patients up to five years of age.
