Objectives of Neurodevelopmental group

Neurodevelopment refers to the development of the brain’s neurological pathways that impact a person’s performance or function.

Our team of developmental psychologists have significant experience in observing the neuropsychological development of young children from birth to early childhood. Their input into the NBCI is to provide information on the longterm outcomes for children who have suffered from neonatal brain injury.

By identifying these outcomes, our hope is that the Network can provide evidence that will encourage improved interventions for such children
