Department of Rehabilitation and Behavioural Science, SGMMH is committed to improve survival outcome through early identification and management of Defects at Birth, Developmental delays including disabilities and assured link to care, support and therapies to meet these challenges.
Developmental impairment is a common problem in children health that occurs in approximately 10% of the childhood population and even more among “at risk” children discharged from the sick newborn care unit; however the actual estimates may be higher.
The idea behind early intervention is to intervene early and minimize disability. Once the disability is already established then the intervention would include enhancement of child development for the child to reach the highest potential for the child possible and prevent progression to handicap that may arise from activity limitation.
We are dealing with the following conditions here in our Department :
Psychopathology (Conditions Treated)
Psycho Diagnostics (Psychological Testing)
Dept. runs a Therapeutic Monthly Package for Autism, Down Syndrome, Global Developmental Delay, Intellectual Disability &Cerebral Palsy etc.
