Developmental follow up for NICU graduates
Infants who have been in an NICU are more likely than other infants to demonstrate various difficulties with their development. Providing evaluations in a periodic manner through follow up can identify any issues that a child may be showing at a very early age. This allows families to change how they are interacting with their infant and to engage early intervention and therapy services if needed. Once services are in place, ongoing visits monitor progress and any intervening needs can be identified.
Visits are set up to investigate growth, feeding and sleeping behaviors and to assess developmental milestones and performance skills in motor, language, social and self help areas. Typically there can be 1-3 visits during the first year and then 2 visits during the second year with a 3 year old visit and pre-kindergarten visit if desired. The 3 year old visit looks very carefully at language and learning styles and the pre-kindergarten visit is to monitor for any learning difference that may be present that would impact a child’s success in school. Educating parents and caregivers at each visit about the specific needs of each child frequently can deal with any potential issue early and prevent bigger problems later on.
