Abstract

Advanced technology combined with improvements in neonatal care have increased the survival rates of low-birth-weight infants and infants born with severe birth defects. These infants are at greater risk for long-term health and developmental problems. The effect of having a child with a disability on the family is described, and emerging interventions and resources available for these families are provided.
