  3. 3. “ I regard developmental examination as an essential part of everyday practice with a minimum of equipment, in an ordinary mixed clinic, and not in a special room, or at a special time, or with special complicated equipment or by a special doctor ” R.S. Illingworth
  4. 4. 25 million yearsEvolution Development 25 months
  5. 5. Develop. Screening All Children Develop. Assessment Quick Subjective Gen. Pediatrician in his clinic Children with perinatal events, risk factors, delay suspected Time consuming Objective - tests Dev. Pediatrician || Neurologist ENT Surgeon Ophthalmic Ortho Child psych. Physiotherapist occupational, speech School teacher Mother
  6. 6. Objectives • Sensitization - Dev. Screening • Early identification & appropriate referral • Simple format using – Ordinary tools – Within 10 - 15 minutes – Clinic / OP settings – Subjective assessment
  7. 7. Beyond the Scope of this Lecture • Detail Assessment • Formal - objective tests Specific disabilities • ADHD, deafness, MR, autism, LD Special investigation • BERA
  8. 8. Why should we assess ? • To reassure parents • Early diagnosis and management of disability • Feedback for obstetrician and neonatologist • Prevention in next sibling
  9. 9. What to do ? • Just passively observe his play and spontaneous activity • Use TDSC to screen • Go little more deeper with Development Chart (Lingam S. UK) • Need not memorise • Keeps the charts over the table and assess
  10. 10. Four Aspects of Development • Motor - Body posture & large movements • Fine movement, vision and manipulative skills • Hearing and speech • Social behaviour & spontaneous play Development Assessment is most conveniently divided into four fields Development Assessment is most conveniently divided into four fields
  11. 11. Developmental screening scale (S.Lingam 1987, UK) 4-6 weeks 3 months 6 months 9 months GROSS MOTOR Supine: head on sides, fencing, hands closed, thumbs in Pulled to sitting head momentarily erect and fall Held sitting: back curved Ventral suspension: Head in line with trunk Walking, stepping Supine: Head in midline Hands open, moves arm symmetrically Hands together in midline Pulls to sitting little or no headlag Kicks vigorously Ventral suspension-Head above trunk Prone lifts head with forearm support Supine: Raises head, lifts legs, grasp foot On grasping hand pulls self to sit Prone: Hand support Sitting with support straight back Downward parachute: Bears weight on feet Sits alone – 10-15 minutes Leans forward without losing balance Attempts to crawl Pulls to stand to crawl Forward parachute ( 7 m) Rolls over back to prone FINE MOTOR Turns eyes and head towards light Shuts eyes to bright light Regards mother face Follows ball ¼ circle Follows adult movements with available field Follows ball ½ circle Hand regard Finger play Defensive blink Moves head and eyes early in all directions Fixes eyes on objects Reaches and grasp Palmar grasp Transfers object from one had to other Very attentive Visual: Good peripheral vision Pokes at small objects Pincer grasp Watches rolling ball at 10 feet LANGUAGE ‘Startle’, stiffens Blinks, screws up eyes Fan out fingers Cries or freeze in response to noise Quietening or smilling to mother’s voice Turns immediately to mothers voice Mono and double syllable Responds to distraction hearing test at 1½ feet at ear level Laughs and chuckles Long repetitive string of syllable- Mama, Dada Understands no, no, bye bye Hearing test response 3 feet below and above SOCIAL Turns to regard nearby speaker’s face Stops crying when picked up and spoken to Social smile Fixes eyes on mother Unblinking, purposeful gaze Smiles, coos to familiar situations Reach and grasp small toys Takes to mouth Shakes rattle Holds bottle and feeds Still friendly with strangers Plays peek-A-Boo Holds, bites and chews biscuits Reserved with strangers (7m) Imitates hand clapping Finds a toy partly hidden WARNING SIGNS FOR FURTHER EVALUATION Not responding to nearby voices by 8 weeks Absent ‘Startle’ No social smile by 3 months Not showing interest in people/ playthings by 3-4 months No head control by 5 months No vocalization Persistent moro, asymmetric tonic neck reflex Not visually alert Not reaching for objects No hand transfer Not sitting No repetitive babble even by 10 months

  57. 57. Interpretation • Give allowance for prematurity, fatigue, illness, familial pattern • If in doubt, repeat later • Remember - wide range of normal deviation
  58. 58. After the Developmental Examination • Is there any delay ? • Can it be a normal variant ? • Is it global delay or dissociation between fields ? • If not definite, can I decide after repeating the test ? • Can I ask for help ?
  59. 59. • Language perception is well advanced than expression • Some do bear walk • Some bounce around floor (Bottom shuffling) • Some do side stroke, crawl backwards or roll • Some never crawl; they stand and walk Normal Variant
  60. 60. Causes of Motor Delay • Normal or Familial variation bottom shuffling • Chronic illness • CP • Neuromuscular diseases - DMD, SMA • Orthopedic - CDH • Rickets • Emotional neglect
  61. 61. Warning Signals in Language Development • Risk of deafness • Mother’s suspicion • No response to everyday sounds • No repetitive babble by 10 months • No word by 21 months • Not putting 2 - 3 words together by 21 /2 years
  62. 62. Language delay • Reception is well advanced than expression – Hearing defects – Familial & genetic – Global delay – Autism – Environmental
  63. 63. Global Delay • Chromosomal defects • Syndromes • CP • Structural brain defects • Neurometabolic problems • Postnatal causes
  64. 64. Factors affecting development • Genetic • Physical • Nutritional • Emotoinal • Sociocultural • Neurological 66
  65. 65. Developmental Quotient • Computed by the following formula • Developmental age / Chronological age X 100 67
  66. 66. INTELLECTUAL QUOTIENT • MENTAL AGE /CHRONOLOGICAL AGE. • <70- MENTAL RETARDATION. • GLOBAL DEVELOPMENTAL DELAY <3 YEARS. 68
  67. 67. Development assessment scales • Denver Development Chart • Baroda Developmental Screening chart • Trivandrum Developmental Screening chart • Bayley Scale of Infant Development (BSIS) • Developmental Assessment Scale for Indian Infants(DASII) 69
  68. 68. BONE AGE • AT BIRTH UPTO 4 MONTHS- KNEES AND HIP. • 4-12 MONTHS-SHOULDER. • 1 -10 YEARS- WRIST. • > 8- 14 YEARS-ELBOW. • ( LEFT SIDE BONES ARE ASSESSED) 77
  69. 69. WHO GROWTH CHART • In an effort to set an internationally usable standard for optimal growth in young children, the World Health Organization is conducting the Multicenter Growth Reference Study (MGRS) to develop growth curves that can be used for assessing early growth among children from around the world. • MGRS describes the growth of children who are raised under optimal conditions, following recommended health practices, such as environments that support exclusive breast-feeding, Baby- Friendly Hospitals, and mothers who agree to breast-feed their infants. • Six study sites represent 5 continents in the major regions of the world: United States, Brazil, Norway, Ghana, Oman, and India. 78
  70. 70. SLEEP EVALUATION • The BEARS instrument is divided into 5 major sleep domains, providing a comprehensive screen for the major sleep disorders affecting children 2–18 years old. Each sleep domain has a set of age-appropriate “trigger questions” for use in the clinical interview. 79
  71. 71. To conclude …... Screen the development in all well children • Observe his play and spontaneous activity • Use TDSC to screen • Go little more deeper with Development Chart (Lingam S. UK) - if there is suspicion • Keeps the charts over the table
  72. 72. Decisions • Abnormal • Probably normal • Doubtful • Normal See again Refer
