Neurodevelopmental and Psychosocial Issues in Children with Congenital Heart Defects: Expected Not Accepted

November 12, 2015 | 2-2:45pm Central

Children with Congenital Heart Defects (CHDs) are living longer and are at increased risk of having developmental delay. Likewise, children with many types of CHDs receive special education services more often than children without birth defects. Systematic neurodevelopmental surveillance, screening, evaluation, and reevaluation throughout childhood is important to assess academic, behavioral, psychosocial, and adaptive functioning. Early deficit identification and appropriate interventions can help children achieve optimal outcomes. Faculty will summarize current evidence related to children with CHDs and developmental issues, review guidelines for periodic screening and evaluation, and present strategies to enhance outcomes for children with CHDs. There is no charge to attend; however prior registration is required. For more information, contact Dana Bright at
