This may include their information on when the child started talking, feeding and more. They will observe your child’s through certain structured tasks. Based on their interpretation, your doctor will further recommend certain tests.
The treatment or management protocol of a development/growth problem depends upon the type of condition, the cause of the problem, child’s age, family history and overall health.
Your paediatrician will offer several strategies and therapies to be applied at home as well as counselling and therapy sessions in the care plan. While some conditions may require medicinal interventions, others may be entirely managed through lifestyle and behavioural modifications.
The CK Birla Hospital is the best hospital for children. My son was having learning difficulties. He has turned 4 but he still has problems in performing certain tasks that children in his age group do without any worries. I wanted my child to receive the best treatment for his difficulties. The paediatrics department here is just wonderful. The doctors and their support team are very friendly and compassionate. Doctors involve you in the treatment and make you feel like a part of it at every step. My son has been doing much better since our first consultation. His abilities and health are improving all because of the doctors at the CK Birla Hospital. My many thanks to them. Thanks to the whole team of CK Birla Hospital.
