Our clinic works with children who were born at 32-36 weeks gestation, or 4 to 8 weeks early. We provide developmental assessment and on-going monitoring. We know that these children are at higher risk for developmental differences.
Our goal is to catch any problems early. We want to help your child grow, learn, and thrive to their highest potential.
What to Expect During Your Visit
- Assessment process: We perform a special development screening for your child at regular times from 4 months to 2 years. If needed, we will connect your child to resources to support their development. After the visit, you and your child’s primary care provider will receive a detailed report on your child’s development.
- The length of your visit depends on how many specialists you see. Most visits last 60-90 minutes. You will be with your child the entire time.
- Billing and Insurance: Most health insurance policies will cover your clinic visits. Costs for a visit depend on your child’s age and how many specialists you see. Contact your health insurance company to find out what services they cover, if there are co-pays, and if you need to get their authorization before your clinic visit.
- E-Care is the confidential medical record system used for CHDD Specialty Clinics. You can view upcoming appointments, lab results, and other visit information online. Parents or guardians of children may sign up for eCare access to their children’s online health records. You can contact your child’s clinic for more information, or sign up in person when you check in for your child’s appointment.
- Interpreter Services: Specially trained medical interpreters are available for patients or family members who do not speak English. Be sure to request an interpreter, if needed, when you contact our clinic. Let us know which language you prefer to use.
