Complex Pediatric Therapies Follow-up Program

Provides developmental, functional, language and cognitive assessments for young children after life-saving, complex interventions.

Services include providing a variety of assessments for young children after life-saving, complex surgeries, and heart-lung life support to assess their abilities and offer them assistance if needed. Services are offered to help young children reach early developmental milestones and help pre-school children with school placement and learning.

Assessments are offered in developmental and neonatal follow-up clinics. They are done 6 months after treatment or surgery, between 18 to 24 months of age, and at 4 to 5 years of age.

How long it takes to do an assessments depends on:

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