Cardiac Neurodevelopmental Family Symposium

Join other parents and professionals who care for children with complex congenital heart disease (CHD) for the second annual Cardiac Neurodevelopmental Family Symposium at Boston Children's Hospital. Through lectures and workshops with leading experts in the field of cardiac neurodevelopment, new and returning participants will learn about the risks facing children with complex CHD, and they will develop strategies to manage those risks. Topics will include managing anxiety, feeding and sleeping problems, supporting executive function, working with public schools, and genetics. This year will feature more workshops, and more opportunities for choice and specialization, including interest group lunches facilitated by Cardiac Neurodevelopmental Program staff. This year's content is all new, and we encourage last year's attendees to join us again for this day of learning.

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Explain several of the neurodevelopmental risks associated with complex congenital heart disease
  • Explain why heart disease can affect brain development
  • Describe several strategies and services that can help to mitigate neurodevelopmental challenges in children with CHD
  • Explain how, within their own practice or family, they can assess neurodevelopmental risk, and seek appropriate neurodevelopmental care for a person with CHD


This course is intended for parents and caregivers of children with CHD, including: physicians, psychologists, nurses, nurse practitioners, teachers, early intervention specialists, speech and language pathologists, physical therapists, and occupational therapists. This course will be relevant to professionals who specialize in cardiology, family medicine, healthcare education and leadership, neurology, pediatrics and adolescent medicine, psychiatry, psychology, and mental health.
