Behavioral Pediatricians have the training and experience to assess and treat children who are experiencing developmental, behavioural, or learning issues. They’ve been specially trained to take into account both the medical and psychosocial aspects of developmental and behavioural issues.
During the first appointment, an interview will first be done to understand the child’s functioning, which areas are difficult and which are the strengths, developmental history, and medical history.A treatment plan would then be formalised.
The type of diagnosis may vary from case to case. Some disorders are diagnosed by conducting a comprehensive interview, review of records, observation of the child and clinical judgment. Other disorders may require psychological evaluation.
Group therapy allows you and your child to come together with others to share difficulties or worries, gain a better understanding of your own situation, learn from and with peers, and better understand your own patterns of thought and behaviour and those of others. Your child can benefit from group therapy by learning more about themselves and improving their interpersonal relationships. It can help with emotions of solitude, despair, or anxiety, as well as the development of skills. Group therapy also provides a safe space in which your child can learn about the commonalities that exist among all people. This intervention allows participants to practise giving and receiving constructive feedback as well as try out and practise new communication, problem-solving, and decision-making skills.

Tell your child you’ll be visiting a clinic and you may bring your child’s favourite toy from home to play with or an object they feel comfortable with.
If your child fails to grasp skills in reading, spelling, writing, or math at or near expected age and grade levels, has a hard time comprehending and following directions and has problems recalling what was just said to the child, then the child might have a learning disability and should be taken to a Behavioural pediatrician for diagnosis.
Intellectual disability is the most common developmental disability. The second most prevalent developmental impairment is cerebral palsy, which is followed by autism spectrum disorder.
While anxiety can make things like focusing and paying attention more difficult, it is one of many symptoms, not the cause, of learning issues.
