PEDIATRICS TEAM LAUNCHES UNIQUE CLINIC TARGETING KINDERGARTEN READINESS

In the first clinic of its kind in California, the UC Davis Medical Center in February launched a new program to support the developmental progression of premature and high-risk babies up to age 5 and offer family intervention services to help assure children will be kindergarten-ready.

While technological advances have allowed an increasing number of children born prematurely to survive, about one-third of these babies suffer learning disabilities and developmental delays that can follow them throughout their lives.

The Department of Pediatrics' new Developmental Care Clinic aims to identify children at risk early. The clinic is funded with $2.1 million of Proposition 10 money from Sacramento County's Children and Families Commission.
