Complex Pediatric Therapies Developmental Assessment Clinic

The Complex Pediatric Therapies Developmental Assessment Clinic at the GRH, and a similar follow-up program at the Alberta Children's Hospital under the Neonatal Follow-Up Clinic, follows the development of children receiving life-saving therapies in Alberta.

These assessment clinics are part of the inter-provincial Complex Pediatric Therapies Follow-up Program that provide developmental, functional, language, and cognitive assessment after life-saving, complex surgeries, and heart-lung life support, to assess the child's abilities and offer assistance if needed. Services are offered to help young children reach early developmental milestones and help preschool children with school placement and learning. Assessments are offered six months after initial treatment or surgery, between 18 to 24 months of age, and at four-to five years of age.

How long it takes to do an assessment depends on:

  • The site
  • The child’s age
  • The number of healthcare providers involved
