Developmental Care
An approach to individualized care for sick or premature newborns.

Developmental care translates into Les soins du développement in French. It is an individualized approach of care that aims at reaching the optimal potential of development in sick or premature infants admitted in neonatal units.   This approach is based on the interpretation of newborns’ behavioral cues , and on specific interventions to maximize their adaptation to the outside environment and the participation of parents as active partners in the care of their infants. This philosophy of care allows us not only to promote and maximize the neurosensory integration essential to these infants’ neurological development, but also to diminish, and even prevent in some cases, long-term neurodevelopmental complications.

We offer theoretical educationnal programs in health care institutions as well as in conferences.  Also, a follow-up program for clinical integration is offered in NICUs. These services  are aimed mainly at health care professionals evolving in NICUs, and are available in Canada as well as overseas.
