Contact your pediatrician first. If a developmental-pediatric examination is recommended, your pediatrician will arrange one for you.
A development check can only be arranged by registering with your pediatrician.
This varies from case to case. If the heart defect is recognized as a birth defect (GG 313), disability insurance usually covers the costs of the examination.
Practically all children with congenital heart defects who have no major problems in everyday life attend regular school. It is quite possible that they need school support in certain areas. However, whether and to what extent this is needed has to be considered individually.
No. Try to raise your child as normally as possible and let them experience the world for themselves. If you feel insecure about this, get some support from a specialist.
