Activities done here
Gather all history in detail, perform examinations including general and neurological, order investigations when required, make a diagnosis where appropriate, give treatment for medical and neurological symptoms and refer to  relevant ‘clinics’ for developmental assessment. Patients having delays in speech and language are sent to our ‘psychology service’ or referred for hearing assessment to the Department of ENT. Visually impaired children are referred to Department of Ophthalmology. We also refer some to Paediatric Surgery and other specialties of Paediatrics when problems arise. This is easily done because of maintaining good liaison with all other departments of the University. Children attending with acute problems like Status Epilepticus, GBS, Meningitis, Encephalitis, Transverse Myelitis are advised for admission on an emergency basis from this clinic; some with chronic conditions like Wilson’s, ICSOL, SSPE are also referred for admission. Few beds are there in our centre where patients having or suspected of having febrile seizures can be kept under direct supervision for few hours.
