Often kids are labelled with various problems related to learning, very casually. Without using exact criteria for diagnosis issues like autism, hyperactivity,learning disability or poor school performance.
These kids need to be assessed by neuropediatrician to understand key areas of developmental lacunae in a given child which often may be related to some definable disability. The ND assessment will classify the severity or grade of same and the pediatrician will decide the priority and further reference, follow up and reassessment along the targetted goals; with help of medicines, brain nutrients, neuro modulators and goal directed occupational therapy and speech Therapy. Often there may be a need to perform iQ tests, and various assessments or take help of counselor or remedial educator or behavioural therapist and psychologist. A Pediatrician is the key coordinator of the whole multidisciplinary management. Following up with just a single specialist may make the child vulnerable to have hidden undiagnosed but modifiable morbidities and hence the need for periodic reassements.#DrSK #PedNeuro #CDC #Mumbai click to know more http://aakaarclinic.weebly.com
