Children born with serious heart and vascular conditions have unique needs as they grow — especially those who’ve had heart surgery in their first year of life or long hospitalizations.
Nemours Children’s cardiac neurodevelopmental team helps kids live healthier lives. We identify and address developmental, learning, emotional and behavioral problems early so kids can grow up strong and happy.
We know how cardiovascular conditions affect a child, and family. As part of a renowned, award-winning pediatric heart center in Delaware, we work side by side, every day, with cardiothoracic surgeons, cardiologists, electrophysiologists, interventional cardiologists, cardiovascular genetics specialists, and more who treat the rarest, most complex conditions.
Our psychology team is awarded and recognized around the world as leaders and researchers who shape the model of neurodevelopmental care for kids with congenital heart defects. We empower children and families to build their healthiest lives, physically and emotionally.
