Neonatal Follow-Up Programs

The Neonatal Follow-Up Program at NewYork-Presbyterian/Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital is committed to making your transition home from the NICU as smooth as possible.  Our comprehensive approach enables us to identify neurodevelopmental delays or concerns, optimize your child's neurodevelopmental progress, and assist you in obtaining additional services as needed. The first follow-up visit through our program will be when your child is about 6 months old.  If your child was born premature, then this visit will be at your child's 6-month adjusted age (the age that accounts for your child's prematurity).

Our services include:

  • Neurologic examination by a developmental pediatrician or neonatologist
  • Assessment of your child's development by a child psychologist
  • Referrals for appropriate medical, developmental, and other specialized services
  • Close monitoring of customized treatment plans developed in collaboration with developmental agencies, such as the Early Intervention Program (EIP)
  • Referrals for family-centered community-based support and information services, such as advocacy organizations, parent support groups, and center-based programs for children (such as school-based programs)

We'll share a summary letter/report of each visit with you, your child's pediatrician, and your Early Intervention Program (if your child is currently enrolled in one).
