Dear All

Thank you for joining the sessions today.

Dr S joined us from Kuwait today and offered specific and practical advice – having been in the RCPCH hotseat not so long ago.

Dr S advised to use: C-C-C-B-B-B in assessment.

In RRR we discussed:

  • Problem Oriented History of a child at Development station
  • Signs of spasticity & treatment options
  • Support for 5 year old with difficulty of walking

the Clinical station we covered Development – Fine Motor Assessment. We saw a Fine motor assessment being demonstrated by a colleague. Dr A took the hotseat and made a very good attempt at assessment. There were issues on better summary and presentation methods. All the participants contributed to the discussion.

The Learning points are:

  • Essential to have a systematic approach
  • General observation is part of EVERY station
  • Time is tight – practice to complete in scheduled time
  • Choose Toys appropriately
  • If you finish EARLY – likely you have MISSED some time.
  • Vision & Hearing – need to be confirmed
  • Hand preference EARLIER than expected needs to be ‘Reported’
  • MDT: Know composition and WHAT each member does.
  • Crayon – Colour matching – Cutting – Blocks – Books – Beads.
