Developmental screening provides a quick check of your child’s development. It can be thought of a snapshot of your child’s motor, cognitive, language, and social-emotional skills. Screening will help determine if your child is meeting the appropriate milestones for their age.
What are NICU Follow-up Programs?
NICU Follow-Up Program aims to provide ongoing evaluation and guidance related to the development of high-risk children during the first three years of life. The goal of this program is to make sure that these children are developing to the best of their ability. If a child experiences developmental difficulty, we provide families with suggestions for fostering their child’s development at home and help the family get the early intervention services needed in their community.

If you have concerns about your child’s feeding, please know that you are not alone. Early detection and treatment of feeding problems are critical to the long-term health and well-being of affected children. The Feeding Matters Infant and Child Feeding Questionnaire© helps to identify early feeding issues and provides parents with information about normal development and whether there might be concerns. You can download the questionnaire and take it to your provider for more information.
