Child Development

The Department of Child Development provides specialist diagnostic and intervention services for children with developmental, learning and behavioural difficulties. We serve children with a range of developmental issues such as: 

  • Poor social and play skills
  • Emotional and behavioural difficulties
  • Motor skill and coordination challenges
  • Speech clarity challenges
  • Language delays 
  • Developmental delays associated with medical conditions
  • Learning delays and disorders

These children may have developmental conditions such as:

Children who are flagged with developmental concerns will meet our paediatricians at the first consultation in KKH for a comprehensive evaluation. This may include further medical investigations such as hearing tests, blood tests, etc. Children suspected or diagnosed with the above difficulties may be offered interim therapy services at our satellite clinics

Children requiring longer-term intervention services are referred to appropriate community services to help them develop and integrate into the community.
