Evaluations are needed to ensure that your child grows and develops properly. By monitoring your child's health, development, and giving guidance and referrals as needed, we can help your infant reach his or her full developmental potential. Early diagnosis and treatment of developmental delays may prevent or lessen long-term problems associated with prematurity and serious newborn illness.
Special examinations are performed by a pediatric nurse practitioner or a clinical psychologist to evaluate how your baby is growing, changing, learning and developing.
- Neuromotor function (muscle strength or weakness)
- Growth and nutrition (physical growth)
- Language development (ability to listen and talk)
- Social interaction (ability to interact with others)
- Developmental milestones (ability to achieve developmental stages)
The complete evaluation takes about 1 ½ to 2 hours, and the results are discussed with you. The evaluation provides an opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have about your child's development. A copy of the evaluation report is also sent to your child’s pediatrician.
