Q.

Assesment

Hi Doc

My son is 3 1/2 years old and was born very premature at 26 weeks. We are currently having problems at his school with his development and was asked to send him for an assessment. Could you please recommend where I could take him as we need to also have a neorological assessment done.

Thank you

Your son does need to be assessed from a developmental point of view.He can be seen by either a peadiatric neurologist or by a developmental paediatrician. You do not mention where you live but you will find these experts at the Paediatric department at your nearest teaching hospital.Otherwise ask your paediatrican to refer you to the nearest expert.
