NeuroCardiac and Development Program

As increasing numbers of children survive congenital heart disease (CHD) treatments, there is growing recognition of academic, behavioral and developmental challenges that may impact these children as they grow. The NeuroCardiac and Development Program at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital is a specialized group of cardiologists, neurologists, geneticists, dietitians, therapists and nurses dedicated to improving the academic and social success of these children.

The NeuroCardiac and Development Program provides routine developmental evaluations for infants to young adults. The program partners with the child’s pediatrician and primary cardiologist to recommend interventions to promote the best outcomes for the child and their family.

Is the NeuroCardiac Development program right for your child?

Candidates for the program include children with complex CHD and any of the following:
  • Surgery within the first 6 months of life
  • Developmental or genetic syndromes
  • Seizures or stroke
  • Prematurity (Born <37 weeks gestation)
  • Not meeting developmental milestones
  • Emotional outbursts or behavioral problems
  • Struggling in school

Clinics are held on the 1st, 3rd, and 4th Thursdays of the month.
