Dear All
Thank you for participating in the session even when some of you were on long shift.
We moved on to Development station. In the RRR we discussed:

  • GMFCS. Score of 1-5.
  • 6 stages of play – age related to 4+ years
  • ADHD & ASD – screening

Development station is an important component of the clinical exam and a comparatively difficult station for most of us. Exposure to Community paediatrics is limited for most trainees – specially overseas.
AG discussed a PP presentation on the Development station on What and How?

Next few sessions we will watch and verbalize actual tasks after watching simulated attempts.
Learning points:

  • Scared. Is the first thought that comes to mind
  • Practice, practice, practice.
  • Sit in Community / development clinics in hospital – if time permits
  • Start development – lower age – work upwards.
  • One tool / toy at a time
  • Do not confuse or overwhelm the child

Visit to add your comments or points I may have missed.
