Cardiac Neurodevelopmental Program
Caring for the whole child
Boston Children's Hospital is home to a dedicated Cardiac Neurodevelopmental Program. We provide comprehensive consultation, assessment and intervention services for children with congenital heart disease and their families.
As more children with heart problems survive cardiac surgery, doctors are realizing that some have challenges in their development and learning skills.
Psychologists and neurologists are working with cardiologists and surgeons to improve developmental outcomes after surgery for congenital heart defects.
- As one of only a handful of cardiac neurodevelopmental services in the U.S., our program strives to meet these patients' complex needs by delivering expert, multidisciplinary care in a compassionate, family-centered environment.
