Advocate Children’s Hospital – Oak Lawn Cardiac Neurodevelopmental Program
Children and adolescents with congenital heart defects can face many challenges, including developmental, learning and psychosocial issues. The Cardiac Neurodevelopmental Program at Advocate Children’s Hospital – Oak Lawn focuses on addressing those needs through a multidisciplinary team of experienced clinicians who understand that these children need care and support that extends beyond their cardiovascular health. Specialists and clinicians from different disciplines work closely together to assess children and help them achieve cognitive milestones and other developmental markers. The role of the Cardiac Neurodevelopmental Program is to optimize the neurodevelopmental outcomes of every child with heart disease.
Funds raised through the 2014 Golf Classic will help the Advocate Children’s Hospital – Oak Lawn pediatric cardiology team provide comprehensive care that includes consultation, development assessments and intervention services to address speech and language difficulties, as well as attention, behavioral and emotional problems for infants, children and young adults with congenital and acquired heart conditions. Your support will help enhance and expand our program so that each pediatric patient we care for has the opportunity to reach his or her full potential.
