Growth and Development

  • The Growth and Development Clinic offers developmental assessment for children:
    • Who were born before 28 weeks
    • Who weighed less than 1,000 grams at birth
    • Who had significant neurological problems such as seizures or intraventricular haemorrhage
    • Who were enrolled in a research follow up study while in the nursery

    These children are at increased risk of experiencing developmental or learning difficulties throughout childhood. Growth and Development Clinic appointments are made to monitor your child’s progress and to help you and your chosen healthcare providers to identify potential problems as early as possible.

    This service should be viewed as an addition to your regular checkups with your own chosen
    paediatrician or other healthcare providers.
