Neurodevelopment is a term that describes how our brains grow and form connections that direct our function and behaviors. Infants and children with congenital heart defects are at risk for delays in areas such as motor skills, coordination and learning. Early and periodic evaluation is recommended for infants and children with congenital heart conditions to help them develop to their fullest potential.
For teens with a chronic illness or disability, adolescence is a combination of a special developmental period and a difficult set of challenges. Adolescence is a unique developmental time characterized by emerging independence, rapid cognitive and physical growth, and the development of an identity. Peer relationships develop a special significance during adolescence. Chronic illness and disability impose physical limitations, often require repeat medical visits, and can involve complex medical treatments.
