Developmental Screening

Developmental screening is a close observation of the child’s growth and development. Children grow at a rapid pace during the early years and the growth of each child is unique in their own way. To lead a healthy and fulfilling life, it is important that the physical, as well as the mental development of the child, occurs optimally.

What is developmental screening?

Though the growth of each child is different from another, there are certain general developmental milestones that every normal child is expected to reach. This includes a wide variety of parameters like physical development, speaking abilities, motor skills, behaviour, learning abilities, etc. Most children acquire these skills gradually within an expected timeframe but a few children may face difficulties in one or more aspects of development. Developmental screening is the method of tracking the child’s progress and development and it also involves identifying issues if any.

Why is it important?

Studies suggest that five to ten percent of children suffer some or the other kind of developmental disability. At such an early age, children are unable to convey the problems and issues they face and hence, many times such developmental issues go unnoticed even by the parents. Hence, developmental screening is essential to identify the problems that the child might be facing. Some common developmental issues that uncover during screening include:

  • Learning disabilities
  • Autism
  • Intellectual disability
  • Speech or language problems
  • Behavioural issues
  • Issues related to motor skills
  • Hearing or vision impairment
  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

It is extremely important to identify any such issues at an early age as early intervention can be very effective in treating any kind of developmental disability. Hence, parents are strongly encouraged to get their child evaluated by a paediatrician at regular intervals.

At Motherhood, we periodically monitor children for any developmental disorders and provide the best quality of treatment to ensure the child reaches his or her full potential. Our paediatricians are extremely qualified and highly experienced in handling developmental disorders and providing effective solutions for the same.
