Developmental screening is a close observation of your 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.
HEARING AND VISION SCREENING
Hearing and vision are two of the most important senses of the human body. However, hearing loss or vision problems are quite common amongst people of all age groups, including children. During the early phases of development, many children face hearing or vision issues but are unable to convey the same to their parents.
Immunisation is the process by which an individual is made resistant or immune to a certain infection. Immunisation is achieved by administering a vaccine which then stimulates the body’s immune system to provide protection against infections or diseases in the future.
Immunisation is one of the most effective ways of tackling various types of infections, many of which can even have fatal consequences.
An infection is caused when microorganisms invade tissues of the body and cause diseases. Infectious diseases can affect people of all age groups, but are more common in children and infants, as their immune system is not completely developed.
Besides illnesses, injuries are very common among growing children. Children may get injured while learning to stand or walk, running, playing sports, etc. Usually, these injuries only cause minor cracks or cuts, but sometimes it can lead to something serious (like a bone fracture) and require immediate medical attention.
Vaccination is the process of administering a vaccine to enable the immune system to develop resistance against certain diseases. The process of vaccination is a very effective way to prevent various life-threatening health conditions. Vaccination stimulates the body’s adaptive immunity to provide protection from certain infections.
