This article focuses on recent progress in the understanding of optimal care for the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) graduate in three domains that have relevance to primary care pediatricians: the concept of developmentally supportive care for the immature central nervous system of fragile premature infants; an understanding of the function and systems of community-based early intervention available for medically complex, developmentally challenged and at-risk infants; and the management of technology-dependent children at home.
