Dear Parents,

-I hope someone could have any information/recommendation on the available Developmental Pediatrician here in the Philippines.
-I tried to contact and have my son checked as early as last year, still no reply from any of the Doctors.
-My son was diagnosed with DORV with PS and has his first operation when he was 4mos old. I really need to get in touch with a developmental pediatrician becuase of the delays and would appreciate any recommendation.

Thanks!

Hi mommies.  Could you help me pls. I would want to consult a developmental pedia for my daughter.  She's 4 years old super daldal pero bulol pa din kasi.  I was thinking that maybe she needs a speech therapist to improve her speech.  Could you recomment a dev. pedia where I could bring her for consultation. Thanks  :)

Hi mommies... just want to share..

according to our pedia it's better to have the child check first by a neuro pedia before consulting a dev pedia... the neuro pedia can diagnose if there's problem with the nerves and muscles which may be the cause of the delay/s... :)

hi mommies..makikisali po. B4 po we need din ng dev pedia coz yung son ko di pa cia nag sasalita at the age of 2.5 y/o. Tapos feeling ko super hyper  niya so i was afraid baka may adhd cia or some sort. We consulted Dra. Benitez sa Asian Hosp. medyo mahirap nga lang magpa sked. Nung nag ka appt kami, inasses cia. pinag laro, tapos may mga tinanong sa kanya usually may mga toys and cards na pina gawa. Then the findings: he's 6mos delay sa speech. She recommends occupational theraphy once a wk and a speech therapy every month. Now, my son is 7yo na, and super daldal na.. I think talagang need lang ng bata na may nakaka usap lagi esp mga ka age niya para nakakapag interact cia... :)

^Sis how does occupational therapy works?  My daughter is 4 yrs old na. super daldal pero bulol.  Ang hirap intindihin nung ibang sinsasabi niya.  She speaks English.  She is now attending KUMON reading.  So lalo napansin yung delay niya.  She could not pronounce "s", "l", "r", "t".  But she was doing good in school in fact consistent honor student siya.  Tapos eto pa ang ganda ganda niya magsulat pero hindi tama pag hawak niya sa pen. Closed fist pa rin siya and pati scissors hindi niya mahawakan ng maayos so tingin ko delayed talaga pati sa motor skills niya.

Usually sis ano mga activities ginagawa pag occupational therapy? Thanks.  Yung sa speech sis when your child started seeing a speech therapy ilang months bago mo makita yung improvement?  Thanks  :-*

hi sis, sory medyo delay na reply ko. With regards sa occupatioal theraphy. Ang mga activities na nakita ko is nag co color ng mga odd shapes like yung star, hinati cia sa 6parts tapos iba ibang color each part. Then nag momold sila ng clay, nag ka cut sila ng mga papers na may mga lines na curve, zigzag etc. Tapos mag si sing sila ng mga nursery rhymes na may actions. May part din na paran may obstacles na pinapagawa like crossing sa improvised wooden bar, jumping sa trampoline, nag whi whistle din, and blowig bubbles..Then nag re read din sila ng mga words, as in syllable by syllable, paulit ulit.. .. One of the activities that occupational therapists can address to meet children's needs is working on fine motor skills so that kids can grasp and release toys and develop good handwriting skills. Occupational therapists also address hand–eye coordination to improve play skills, such as hitting a target, batting a ball, or copying from a blackboard.Iba ibang activities eh
Sa speech therapist naman sis, di ko masyado nagtagal ma speech theraphy. Mga two months lang kc my husband and i decided na i enroll cia sa summer class for toddlers. After a wk lang, he started saying phrases na.. So nung nag june, we tried na mag attend cia ng toddler casa.. Since then na develop cia and nag suggest yung OT na mag stop na speech theraphy. Tapos eventually, pina stop na din OT niya, binigyan nalang kami ng activities na pwede namin gawin sa house..
Try mo nalang sis to consult a dev pedia para ma diagnose muna cia if ano kelangan na treatment. btw, here's dra benitez no. if ever u need it: 7719336..God bless.. :)

Hi! You may try at Philippine Childrens Hospital at Q.C.. They have Developmental Pedia and Child Psych as well...Medyo tyaga lang po because of the long lines and scheduling, but the cost is not that expensive.

You can go direct as a private or you go thru OPD to avail discounts.

Hi CABS1755.  I chose Dr. Dimalanta to be the one to assess my baby.  Actually, I just got an appointment date last week.  The earliest we got is on May 6.  So far, all I heard are good feedbacks about him, kaya I feel confident that I made the right choice.

Hi mga mommies gusto ko din sana na-ipacheck baby ko sa dev ped delayed kasi speech niya. Sabi ng Pedia niya ipasok ko daw sa school para makipag-socialize at baka maimprove niya yung speech kasi madami mkakasalamuhang bata. His 2.6 yrs old na sya kaso gusto ko na talagang pumunta devped ang problem ko ang husband ko kasi baka sabihin masyado me paranoid. Sobrang likot din niya at kung minsan hirap pagsabihan. I wanted kasi na maimprove na agad yung speech niya. Sayang kasi matalino syang bata, as in daming alam reading, alphabets, counting, etc. pagdating lang sa pakikipag-communicate late sya compared sa ibang bata. Dami kasi nagsasabi na late talaga ang boys magsalita in fact my 2 brothers late na nagsalita at super bulol. Heridetary kaya ang speech delay?

okey naman si dr. diamlanta magaling talaga..kaso parang mahirap sya makontak pag may follow up question ka alangan naman pumunta pa kami sa st.lukes just to ask 1 to 2 questions tapos magbabayad pa kami eh ang mahal mahal ng fee ng mga dev pedia di ba...
.iam not sure ha feeling ko yung secretary kasi niya ayaw ibigay yun fone eh or baka naman may protocol from dimalanta na he dont entertain fone calls.. sabi kasi ng secretary call her na lang sa cp kaso when we try to contact him hndi niya nasasagot ang call....good thing nakita namin somewhat na slowly nagiimprove na baby ko without the OT intervention minsan nga talaga may mga bata na delay lang talaga so we don't have to rush things but of course for peace of mind i still consulted a dev pedia that time :)  ..kaya we don't plan pa na bumalik hopefully tuloytuloy na nga improvement and if there's a problem pwede naman ulet magpa appointment  :)

I wish I made several appointments din for my son and didn't rely on 1 dev pedia lang. We went to Dra. Malijan last MAY 2010 and it was only NOW that she was able to furnish me a report for my son. It took her 3 MONTHS! Grabe

I took the advice of the other moms. I called for an appointment with Dra. Benitez though February yung nakuha naming sched. I hope we wont be disappointed this time.

Post by: Mikapie on September 24, 2010, 10:46:44 pm


ang dami na sobrang dami na kids undergoing problems with development kaya ang tagal din ng wait list.  I 've been through several developmental pediatricians na rin. Dra. Benitez, Dra. Tanchanco are really nice.  Dra. Jackie Navarro of Medical City naman I like because she makes it a point to make a report talaga.    Haba lang pila.

I also joined a forum called Autismpinoy.com/forums  that has parents who've been through all these doctors and therapies for years.

All I can say is that read and research.  There are many things that you can still do to push your child's development while waiting for your child's assessment.

Try to check out the biological aspect din.  For my son who is now 7, part of the reason his delay was an allergy to milk and that he had toxins (i.e. mercury)  in his body. I had to consult a different kind of doctor pa aside from dev't ped.

I wish I made several appointments din for my son and didn't rely on 1 dev pedia lang. We went to Dra. Malijan last MAY 2010 and it was only NOW that she was able to furnish me a report for my son. It took her 3 MONTHS! Grabe

I took the advice of the other moms. I called for an appointment with Dra. Benitez though February yung nakuha naming sched. I hope we wont be disappointed this time.

if u want an earlier appointment, u just have to be makulit...i am also consulting with Dr. Benitez, so what i do is call almost every week just to check if somebody cancelled an appointment.  tedious nga lang pero minsan nakakatsamba din.  then before u go there, u have to prepare a list of ALL the things u want to ask and if u want an official report u have to tell her immediately kasi medyo matagal din i-prepare...if u are satisfied with her and want to have a follow up check up (usually its after 6 mos.), paglabas mu pa lang ng clinic nxa, talk to the sec. already and booked the next appt.  kasi haba talaga ng pila (super!)

Hi sisses,

i'm new here. I've been researching about developmental delays because at 2.2 yrs old my son still doesn't speak except for at least 4 words. I've already consulted a developmental pedia and her diagnosis is autism. I don't know if i am just in denial but I really don't think he has that. Reasons why i don't think he is autistic

- He looks you in the eye
-  he loves to play with his cousin running around the house. Sometimes he would even be the one who would pull his cousin upstairs to play in our balcony or in our room.
- When his cousin would not let him borrow his toys he would not insist until his cousin is not looking, that's the time that he will grab the toy
- He loves seeing children even those he does not know... he would try to play with them
- He loves holding hands and embracing.
- He understands it when you say that something is not allowed though sometimes he will still find ways to do what he wants. Like when we don't allow him to go under the computer table. He would slowly walk while sitting down towards it so that when you look at him you'll think he's just sitting and not approaching the table
- when he wants to reach something he will get a chair to reach it.
- He understands pain. He doesn't even like seeing a needle or a nebulizer.

His problem areas are speech and he doesn't like some foods. He only eats cerelac, pizza, fries, noodles, spag, pancit, taho and nothing else. He is hard to introduce food with.

With the above characteristic do you think he is really autistic? I'm really worried because I don't know what to do. I'm really looking for a 2nd opinion for him. :'(

hi mommy grace30! my daughter diagnosed by developmental pedia with Language Learning Dissability or LLD. She also has delayed in speech right now she's already 10-1/2 yrs old...for 1 yr we went in a SPED schl wehrein she under go for 1 on 1 session and speech theraphy until the time she improved then accepted in a Montessori as a regular student kasi yung school ay mayroon din for special kids pero when she assessed ng school administrator for special kids sinabi naman na my daughter is okay and they believed she can make it in a regular basis meaning pwede siya ilagay sa normal na classroom not in a 1 on 1 basis but with a support of tutorial session because the cause of her speech delayed was hearing impared (in born niya). right now she's weraing hearing aid in both ears.

in my POV: i don't think your child is authistic based sa kwento mo below because he can relay properly. honestly, sa mga na-encountered ko authistic don sa SPED school na pinasukan ng anak ko totally wala sila focus. i suggest you go for a second opinion ng iba developmental doctor and even consult an EENT doctor wherein your child will go for severl tests masyado mahaba process pero at least malalaman mo ng maaga ang talagang cause.

mommy, tiyaga lang and pray....just let me know if you need any info i'll try to help you.

Thanks for acknowleging my post. I'm really very torn right now. I'm left wondering whether I am in denial or just not convinced. I'm scouring the web right now to look for a new doctor to him checked again. I hope he is normal and just need speech theraphy. I'm also looking for a school that accepts 2 years old. I think he just needs someone to play with because he is just at home with his yaya all day and his yaya doesn't talk much  :(

Hi mommy grace30,

My daughters developmental pedia is dra manalo of medical city,
adhd naman case ng anak ko but then nag sspeech therapy sya  because of her language delay (may clept palate kase sya nung baby),what i observed naman sa mga ibang nagtetherapy sa medical city,ASD yung ibang case nila AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDER,what i noticed noh matatalino sila actually yung mga moms nakaka kwentuhan ko yung anak niya nakakapag play ng piano and other musical instrument without any lessons taken from a music class...nagtataka din sila parang genuis naman anak nila pero un nga lang delayed ang speech,and then yung isa naman super likot din actually talon ng talon sa trampuline pero maririnig mo puro aaaa bababa yayaya ang sinasabi pero above 3yrs old na sya...
so i guess mommy grace ipa explain mo mabuti sa devped mo kung anong klaseng autism meron ang anak mo iba iba naman kase sya...you try to read din more about that disorder,which is i did naman kase akala ko noon ADHD eh sakit  kaya sobrang hurt ako noon nung nadiagnose anak ko...eh later on sa paliwanag ni dra manalo naliwanagan din ako hindi pala sakit...
if your doubting talaga ur devped,pa check ka sa ibang devped nalang ... if kung ano man ma diagnosed sa baby mo accept then gawan na ng paraan para matulungan mo si baby...goodluck sis

@momofrainchira: I guess i'll be going through the stage of depression  ;D currently i'm in the denial stage. I am really trying to accept it but I need one more go with another dev ped to really confirm the diagnosis. Right now I am looking for a toddler school so that my son can interact with other kids.
Title: Re: Developmental Pediatrician
Post by: riddermark on December 13, 2010, 02:02:14 pm
where are you located mommy?

our dev pedia is dra. falcotelo. she didnt say my son has autism on our first visit but she asked us to enrol my son for BM/OT. she noted some red flags such us fleeting eye contact, inconsistent response to name calling, she wants to see how my son does hand flapping, etc. she said she'll rule-out autism.  based on the therapist's assessment, there's nothing wrong with my son but advised me to get the doctor's opinion for she is in a better position to assess or declare if my son is normal. but definitely there is speech delay. he is 2yrs and 3mos as of this time and only a few words can be said with meaning. yung iba nga bihira pa ring banggitin.  he also needs help on his cognitive. as for motor skills, he is at par naman.

with his OT sessions of less than 3 months, there's improvement naman, he can focus (but not totally and still needs a lot of reinforcement).   i dont think my son has autism. but still i want to hear it from his doctor's mouth.  ;)

Post by: grace30 on January 04, 2011, 12:25:28 pm
hi mommies,

just got the writeup from our devpedia and there are some items there that i weren't asked of us but she indicated that we affirmed it. I tried telling her but she wouldn't listened and kinda got into an attack mode like telling us that she made tests and that's the result. I was really shocked when he diagnosed my son to medium to extreme case of autism. I was like... really??? I don't think i'll be coming back to her. Anyway I took my son to see a neuro pedia and her diagnosis is that he may be autistic because of his speech delay but he is in the gray area. Meaning that it is difficult to classify him as such. He is also intelligent said the pedia. He asked us to have him undergo hearing test and mri. Will still schedule him for this.

I'll still continue with the occupational theraphy and speech theraphy but won't go back to the dev pedia. I think my son still needs this if it will help him to talk at least there, there will be someone who could really guide him. He doesn't have someone to talk to at our house which might have caused his speech delay.

It's really hard to get over the diagnosis. Whenever I look at my son i feel like crying because i know in my heart he really is not autistic. I sometimes blame myself because i feel that it's my fault why he's not talking. We are not a family of talkers. We are often in front of the tv or when we play we just play hide and seek to make him laugh and not much on conversation    :'(

We will be seeing Dr Mimi Avendano at PCMC today at 1. 8:00am to 10:00 am then  at  2. 10:30 to 12:30 and lastly 3. 1:00 to 3:00.  My triplets are all speech delayed.  Habang naghihintay kami ng schedule natapos na ni 1 ang OT niya for 6 months now she is attending speech therapy twice a week. Hopefully sa may sabihin nung 1 SLT niya na pa SPED tutorial ko na sya. So far she is improving naman but I really want them to be assessed by a dev ped. Si 2 is also improving dati blank sya as in parang deadma pag kinakausap nakatingin lang sa iyo walang reaction pero now he is playing with his brother and sister na and with other kids as well.  Sa end of the month na ang OT re eval niya hopefully sabihin ng kanya OT to make his SLT twice a week na din.  I will be so happy na din if "graduate na din sya sa kanyang OT. Si 3 ang medyo may concern ako although sabi ng iba he is just a typical toddler na malikot hindi kasi medyo malikot si 3 talagang major major ang kanyang kalikutan so I am not hoping that until Feb na lang ang kanyang OT malamang extended pa pero yung speech niya is ok naman.

I had my son enrolled in OT last Saturday and the therapist said that he doesn't seem to be autistic. He's quite good in identifying colors and playing with puzzles. Though he still needs to undergo OT twice a week so he can learn discipline sine he gets easily frustrated when things don't go his way. She also said that the problem with my son probably occurred because we were not allowing him to learn on his own pace. Just like we still spoon feed him because we don't want him to get dirty. So I guess sometimes it's really our fault when we baby them so much. Also because of the tv thing he's got a short attention span so i'm banning tv from our house  ;D

Hi Mommy, I'm a bit worried with my daughter maybe she has a symptoms of ADHD.  She was on summer class today and her teacher told me that my daughter was so extensive super active. Hindi sya mapakali sa isang tabi ng room. I went to her school so I can see her what's she's doing in school. Yeah, totoo talaga sobrang likot ng anak ko, when the teacher teach her some lessons in little bit of 5 mins lilikot na lang sya bigla. Buti na lang mabait un teacher and she told me to consult a pedia maybe there's something wrong with her. :'(

Please advise mommies

hi mga mommies!

i have read un naunang thread.. all of it.. kasi super worried talaga ko sa son ko. he is 14mos old. yet he still can't walk without support and only babbles syllables. though earlier, siguro 5mos siya nun, he uses mama baba na, pero it stopped til now minsan lang and he parang he doesn't associate it to us. minsan lang pagsobrang inis na niya o frustrated o if he's not feeling well he'll use mama to get my attention. pag-gusto niya na pansinin siya he'll just shout or makes a sound. last chech-up niya, it was brought to our attention by his pedia, kc i ask na nga if okay lang at his age na hindi pa siya nagsasalita or naglalakad. His pedia brought out some things, like a ball, doll and bell.. She ask our son point the bell or get it. pero kinuha ng son ko un ball kasi dun siya familiar. Sabi niya na un nga medyo alarming un sa di paggamit ni baby ko ng mama and dada.. or any word. dapat daw by this time kahiy un mga usual things na gamit ni baby like cup or others he can tell or point. but she said observe p namin within the months. pero she recommended na a dev pedia, kasi nga matagal makakuha ng appointment and puwede naman daw ipacancel pag-okay na si baby. she recommends Dr. Agnes Falcotelo. btw, di ko namention sa pedia niya na he likes spinning wheels and circular objects kahit un mga buttons sa damit, ngayon ko lang kasi nalaman it is a sign pala of autism.

til now di pa kami nakapagpaappointment, marami kasi nagsasabi na ganun daw talaga mga bata lalo na lalake, mas matagal magsalita. pero parang my mind tells me na i should consult na a dev pedia. tapos we left manila pa kasi si hubby sa clark nagwowork, wala makalaro un baby ko na ibang kids. i'm considering na nga to enroll him to school o daycare kaso baka wala pa tumanggap. and unti lang din dito sa pampanga un mga centers for toddlers.

just want to ask your opinions mommies.. is it early pa, should we wait til 18mos?
any feedback din po kay Dr. Agnes Falcotelo.
thanks in advance!

sis set ka na ng appointment. if your gut feel is telling you something, better have him checked. mother's instinct at work yan. tsaka wala namang mawawala kung patingnan niyo siya, what's 2K when it's you peace of mind and child's health that is at stake.

by the way sis, ang waiting time sa mga dev pedia usually months. kaya may time pa si baby humabol if ever. good luck sis, balitaan mo kami.

I also called Dra. Tippy last Saturday. un nga March next year pa sabi ng secretary. pero nun nalaman niya na my son is 1 yr 2mos old, sabi niya they prioritize un mga ganung age sa if magkaopen ng slot, she will call for earlier schedule.

tumawag din ako kay Dra. Falcotelo sa Capitol Medical Center, nagulat naman ako when her secretary said na this August 12 na un schedule ng son ko. I was not expecting that kasi nga sabi din ng pedia namin na nag-refer sa kanya, that it would take 2-3mos para sa schedule. Siguro kasi sa mas Madali sa Capitol makakuha ng schedule kesa sa San Juan de Dios. I didn't make the appointment, siguro i call nalang mga mid-september if wala paring progress ang son ko.

Mga Moms, pasali naman....

May 7 yr old boy ako whose in Grade 1 now.  From Nursery to Prep, 1st honor sya.  Napansin ko na noon pa na may pagkatamad sya mag-aral kaya tutok husband ko sa pagtutor niya (demanding kase work ko at part-time lang work ng asawa ko).  Ngayon grade 1 na sya & since di na tulad ng preschool na tutok din ang teacher, kanya-kanya na sila.  Napansin ko, ayaw niya ng seatwork or notes kaya palagi incomplete notebook niya. Napapagod daw sya sa pagwrite, teacher complained about him a lot kase di daw attentive sa lectures.  Habang naglelecture, nagshasharpen ng pencil, kinakalikot bag, nagha-hum, etc... He is fond of airplanes kaya pag may dumadaan daw sa school, lalabas ng classroom at titignan ng wala paalam - wala lang!  Mahirap pasunurin immediately, ilang ulit ka muna mag-uutos or magsasabo bago kumilos pero mabait na bata and very bright.  Disorganized sa things niya, makalat kahit ilang beses mo sabihan magligpit, ang bagal kumilos kaya lago nale-late sa school....... I don't care kung di na sya mag-top sa class basta OK pa din grades niya kaso apprehensive ako baka mag-flunk sa ginagawa niya.  I suspect ADD/ADHD......or paranoid lang ako? ........ Parang gusto ko na patignan sa dev ped or child psychologist (may pinag-iba ba yun?)...since sabi nga sa thread e matagal ang waiting time kaya may time pa ako mag-raise ng pang-PF....your thoughts pls......salamat!

yes, by all means. you can see a developmental pediatrician.
meron kaming nakasabay dati sa clinic, baka nasa 14yo na yun.
as far as i know (lang), bring reports from teachers/school counselor.
kasi kapag 2 or more environment e kakaiba ang kilos niya, dyan
masasabi kung kailangan nga ng intervention. otherwise, kung halimbawa
sa bahay lang ... baka me hinahanap lang na attention.

just my 2 cents.  PF is 2500 btw to some dev pedias

hi jar513! the nearest that i know of is dra. villadolid at st. victoria hospital in marikina.  medyo mahaba lang ang waiting time (2mos usually) pero normal talaga yun sa mga devped.  our family has a therapy center (www.yourpartnersintherapy.com) and we have known dra. villadolid since we started in marikina in 2008.  if you want, i can help you get a schedule with dra. villadolid. you can contact me via our clinic numbers --> 710.5249, 0929.496.9630. God bless!

hi jar513! (or anyone who would like to consult with a DevPed next week)  we have two patients scheduled for monday morning (oct 3).  two months na silang naka-waitlist kaya lang biglang nag-cancel so if you want to consult with a DevPed (marikina area) without having to wait two months, please feel free to text me (0929.496.9630). sayang naman kasi yung slots na napa-reserve ko kay doktora.

hi tia! pumapasok ba sa pre-school or playschool yung anak mo? :-) if yes, baka pwede mo itanong sa school if they can help you with an IQ test. i know some places where you can go for formal tests by psychologists if that's what you're looking for? lemme know and i'll see if i can help :-) God bless!

Hi Sis LizaMariano, hindi ko pa pinapasok  sa toddler school/playcare program dapat next month na pero naisip ko mas maganda siguro kung next year na lang kase marami nang activities ngayon dahil magpapasko.
Thank you sis ah...di ko naisip na sa school magtanong baka nga may alam sila na nagbibigay ng test for IQ. God bless you!

Post by: missoni on September 29, 2011, 03:23:44 pm
^sis you can try to look for a child psychologist who can test your child's IQ using standardized test like stanford-binet. pero for 2 years old, hindi ako sure if pwede na (more on play dapat kasi yung method for young kids sa pagkuha ng data for assessment).  sis binigyan mo ko ng idea na ipatest yung IQ ng anak ko bago sya magschool. hehe ;D

The dev ped can tell you the skills that your child can do now, and yung equivalent na age ng bata in different areas like fine motor, social skills, cognitive, gross motor, speech, hearing and language . at the end of the assessment, may idea ka na kung saan nag eexcel yung anak mo and yung other areas na either average or below average yung prinesent na skills ni little one.  ;)

HTH :)

Hi Sis! yung dev ped ng anak ko si Dra. Veronica Reloza ng Makati Med..3k yung initial consultation..
check up namin nung wednesday..yung assessment niya sa anak ko meron ASD or GDD..nakakaiyak :( pero pinag hearing test (BAER) sya kanina sa Philippine Childrens Medical Center, makukuha ko yung result sa Monday..kung walang problem sa hearing niya, magstart na kami ng OT.. sana maging okay mga babies natin :)

@ Nanay Iza
Ano po ang mga nakita ng DevPed sa behavior ng anak nyo at nasabi niya na ASD or GDD?
My son is speech delayed din pero nun nakita po siya ng DevPed ang sabi ay hindi naman daw ASD
pero may times po na worrried pa rin ako kasi short po yun attention span niya. We finished early intervention for 6 months. Ngayon po nasa SPED class siya. He is 2yrs. and 6 mos.  Communication Disorder po ang
diagnosis sa kanya ng DevPed.
Title: Re: Developmental Pediatrician
Post by: Nanay Iza on October 15, 2011, 03:03:56 am
@ ELENRN

first po is yung eye contact, meron naman pero konti lang..tapos bihira sya tumingin pag tinatawag, nagwawala sya at grabe sya kung maka imitate..hindi pa din sya nagsasalita (dati may mga words pero ngayon hindi na niya nasasabi)..
yung sa ASD daw po usually akala mo bingi yung bata kasi hindi ka niya papansinin..
kaya din nasabing puwede din GDD kasi sa test na ginawa sobrang baba yung score niya sa dalawang developmental domain..

eto kasi yung mga areas na ntingnan:

locomotor/gross motor - 1.6-1.9 years old
eye-hand coordination/fine motor - 1-1.3 yrs old
hearing and speech/language - 7-10 months
performance/ problem-solving - 8-11 months
personal - social - 1-1.3 yrs old

sobrang baba yung hearing/speech language & performance/problem solving skills niya, kaya din nasabing pdeng GDD (pag nag fail sa more than one area/domain)

nakakalungkot :( iyak kami ni hubby.. pero i'm positive naman na magiging ok sya..
Title: Re: Developmental Pediatrician
Post by: ELENRN on October 15, 2011, 04:44:57 am
Thank you po sa information Nanay Iza. I know how you feel, pero tama yun pagiging positive nyo he will be ok.
Doon po sa school na pinapasukan ng anak ko madaming bata na ASD pero hindi mo mahahalata kasi maayos po ang behavior nila. Malaki po ang improvement once na nag school na at nag theraphy ang bata.
God bless you and your family.

first week pa ko ng May nagpaschedule kay dra. benitez and this nov. 30 na dapat ang schedule namin tapos nadeclare naman na holiday so tumawag kami to confirm the schedule and wala nga daw clinic. naiinis talaga ko kasi nasayang yung paghihintay namin. itext na lang daw kami kung may sked ng dec.  kung hindi pa kami tumawag, hindi pa namin malalaman.

pwede ba na magpaspeech therapy kahit walang recommendation ng doctor or meron ba kayo alam na dev. ped. na hindi ganun katagal ang waiting time. papasok ko na kasi siya sa school next year so gusto ko kung need ng therapy magawa na namin.

Post by: BuildingBlocksClinic on November 23, 2011, 12:51:29 am
Didn't know Dr. Benitez is practicing again. I heard she works in wyeth as a consultant. However, a child displaying behaviors described above can undergo therapies given that it is the right one. If your child is exhibiting increased activity then maybe he is not yet fit to see a Speech pathologist. he may need an evaluation from an Occupational therapist.

With the query regarding Dr. Castrillo, I know she is a Sped Doctor and not a Dev. ped. but is also a Pediatrician by profession which are 3 different things. Hope this helps you guys,been absent from the forum for quite sometime.

I will just share you also my son's problem.

 2 years and 3 months na siya kaso Mama,Papa, Dede,wiwi pa lang ang nasasabi kaya medyo worried na ako.Sinabi ko na din sa pedia ko at sabi niya, ioobserve daw niya until February kung madadagdagan ang vocabulary niya.

According to her,yung anak din daw niya dati, hindi pa rin nakakapgsalita, alang eye contact at laging nilalaro/pinapaikot yung mga wheels ng mga laruan kaya pinacheck daw niya agad.Yung unang Dev. pedia, ASD daw yung findings. Then,para makasure,pinacheck din daw niya sa friend niya.Ala pa daw 20 minutes,tapos na yung check up ng Dr. Ang findings-Autism daw. Syempre, in denial sya kaya kumuha sya ng third opinion. Based sa pangatlong Dr. (taga FEU), delayed lang daw yung bata dahil  sa environment niya. Puro TV lang daw kaya ngkaganun. Bale 2 years  nag therapy yung anak niya.Ngayon, first honor pa nga yung bata.

She gave me already recommendation at ipapasched na daw niya ako dun sa taga FEU na friend niya. Until now,la pa feedback kaya I tried to call yung mga #'s na nakalist dito. I was able to talked to Dr. Padilla's secretary of St. Lukes.Jan. 7 and sched namin.

Anyone here who knew Dr. Carmencita Padilla of St. Lukes.-any feedback po sa kanya.Thanks....

Sis, are you planning to call Dr. Padilla..Kasi Im having secong thought kung ipapacheck ko pa anak ko kasi ala based sa observation at mga naririnig ko,talaga daw na delayed minsan ang mga boys.

Pag kinakausap ko naman, may eye contact, pag inuutusan ko, sumusunod naman, pag tinatawag ko name niya, lumilingon naman..Basta sa ngayon,naramramdaman ko,lang problema ang anak ko..

If you like, kunin mo nalang slot ko...January 7 and sched ko.

@ Momi KAye,

 lang sa akin kung kunin mo slot ko...Sabi kasi ng pedia ko, wait pa kami hanggang APril para maevaluate at maobserve namin..Kasi sa ngayon, nadagdagan vocabulary niya..Tamad nga lang na ulitin o kaya tamad lang talaga na magsalita.,..iILING  sya pag ayaw niya at tatango pag gusto..O di ba, bongga..

By the way, wait na lang natin  reply ni sis twinkl3star kasi kakahiya naman sa kanya ko inooffer una..wait natin maghapon kung magreply sya kasi need ko na din matawagan yung clinic ni Dra para magconfirm..In case, Pm mo na lang sa akin details mo para masabi ko dun sa secretary...Thanks...

hi mommyjanice,

Thanks. yes wait natin reply ni twinkl3star, hiya din naman ako sa kanya syempre... just in case lang na hindi sya available, mahirap kasi maghanap at magpasched agad...  :D

Nabasa ko post mo nung dec. 13, naka-3 docs din pala yung kinukwento mo before finally ma-confirm yung sa baby niya.. at least delayed lang naman pala... yung baby ko kasi same din ng ginagawa... mahilig sya sa mga umiikot na bagay, tapos tv din lalo na commercials.. though may eye contact naman sya tapos kilala niya kami ng daddy niya... ang natatakot ako, sa name calling, di pa rin niya alam ata name niya or ayaw niya lang talaga tumingin kapag tinatawag... tapos lakad sya ng lakad, instead na magplay ng mga toys niya mas gusto niya maglakad... though may mga toys sya na alam nyang laruin pero most of the time e yun nga lakad ng lakad sya... tapos upto now nagd-drool pa rin sya... sabi ko need ko na talaga ng expert before it's too late...

Regarding kay doc padilla, how much pala ang bayad sa kanya?

Thanks a lot mga mommyjanice.  :D
Title: Re: Developmental Pediatrician

Php1500 da ang initial niya tapos 1500 din  yung mga  susunod na consultation niya..yun na yung pinakamura na naresearch ko sis..Ok naman profile ni Dra kaya I belive ok sya..Pag ok sya , dun na din ako sa April in case alang pagbabago sa anak ko..

OO sis, as in 3 Dr's sya..Pedia na sya ha. Sabi niya niya, lahat daw ng symptoms ng autism dati nasa anak niya pero sa awa ng Diyos di naman pala.

Ang anak ko ganun din.sobrang likot din.Normal naman yata yun sa lahat ng bata..MAs nakakatakot nga pag nakaupo na lang sa isang tabi di ba..Ibang usapan na yun..

May nasasabi na ba yung baby mo sis?I mean mama ganun...Much better pagpunta mo sa DP,hingi ka na referral sa pedia mo para mas madali iassess..

Your welcome sis....Pag 4 lapa sya reply,call na ako s aclinic ni Dra..

Wala pa sya nasasabi sis, pero nagbabling sya like mamamama, tadadada, nagsa-sounds naman sya... yun din ang worry ko kaya gusto ko na rin sya mapatingin sa devpedia... ideally, after 3mos ng therapy niya sa OT e saka sya ipapatingin sa devpedia kasi andun pa lang yung assessment ng therapist ko kaso naiinip na ko 3mos pa bago matapos... tapos ang hirap pa magpasched sa mga devped di ba.. meron naman na akong notebook ng mga activities niya sa therapy, yun na lang siguro ipapakita ko... hindi kaya dyahe naman sa pedia ko kung sabihin ko sa kanya na plan namin magpa-assess sa devpedia?  :-[

anyway, yung clinic ni dra padilla sa st. lukes med center yung sa e. rodriguez  quezon city, tama po?

Hello dear parents, I'm a totally newbie here. Im seeking for help. Speaking of delayed child, one of my twin son was diagnosed with ASD. He is 3yo now . But still,  we are looking for another  pediatric developmental doctor for second opinion Hindi kasi lahat ng red flag sign ay nakuha niya. Talking about their professional fee... grabe sumingil maybe because konti lang tlaga ang tulad nilang mga doctor ang kumuha ng ganyang kurso here in Pinas. Pls. help me, if some one here might knew said doctors na mura lang ang PF and what hospital. And kung my alam din kayong Therapy Center na mura lang din. Hope for your soonest response and I'll really appreciate. Thanks.

Hala ano ba  gagawin ko mga ka SP mom. Naging 2nd option is Dr. Francis Dimalanta kasi naun lang nagkaroon ng slot sa kanya after how many months. I tell to the school teacher na we already have the schedule for Dr. Francis so she said go ask for 2nd opinion. but when I told to the Speech Therapist of my daughter at first  she disagree kasi daw un din naman daw Ang magiging result mag speech therapy din and then mahal siya pero sa bandang huli sabe niya kayo mommy you decide. Naguluhan tuloy ako Kung isesecond opinion ko pa.

Hello mommies. Nakapunta na kame ky dr. Dimalanta. Same din yung evaluation niya kay daughter ko speech delay. The problem is hindi ko sinabi kay dr. Francis na nga evaluate na kame sa ibang developmental pediatric. Nag back to zero kame sa kanya. The problem is paano ko iinform yung ST and OT teacher niya na hindi sila maoofend na from the start na iinform ko sila ST and OT parang ayaw na nila ako mgsecond opinion kasi same lang din naman yung magiging diagnosis.
Which is true hindi nga sila ngkmali.
O hanap nnlg ako ng panibagong therapy center?

Be honest n lang, sbhin mo n lang n gusto mo lang talaga humingi ng second opinion.. ako din kc thinking of palit ng OT (dpa kami start ng SP)... kaso gustong gusto ni baby yung OT niya.. kahit nga once a week lang sila magkita sama kaagad c baby pagkita sa kanya.. i am thinking naman to change OT kc parang nbabagalan ako sa improvement ni baby.. parang every week same lang ang ginagawa nila parang wlang next level kumbaga... though sbi nga need ng ff-up sa bahay.. ginagawa naman namin.. and mdami cia kalaro sa house so yung social interaction is wala problem..  so ngayon nagdadalawa isip ako kung magpapalit ako ng OT or  not

hello mommies!

i am a little worried sa princess ko she is 1.5 yrs old and mama, e-yow(hello), no, apiti piti and babbling sounds lang nasasabi niya. many are saying iba iba naman ang developments ng mga babies. but i am a little worried.

at her age ba dapat wait muna ako or should i go to dev ped na?

* Does your child point to objects? Pointing to a toy he wants or to a picture in a book is closely related to the beginning of actual speech. - she loves reading books she points to pictures pero minsan no sound

* Does he seem to understand what you say? Does he react when you call his name when you're out of sight? The ability to understand language precedes the ability to talk. If your child seems to comprehend a great deal of what others are saying, he's well on his way to talking. - yes naman sya dito pero pag inuutusan ko sya to get something pupuntahan lang niya but she wont pick up

* Does your child use gestures and facial expressions to communicate? Many kids communicate what they need nonverbally, and in fact most 2-year-olds develop a host of nonverbal signals. - she cries when she want milk and she point to the tv when she wants dora ganun

* Does your child grunt? Research shows that the little grunts 2-year-olds make while pointing to pictures or playing with their toys are actually a kind of commentary. Children who aren't yet talking and don't grunt are more likely to later be diagnosed with a language delay. - inde ko masyadong gets to, she loves reading books, she makes sounds when she read and when she plays yun ba yun?

Hello Mommies!!

Share ko lang ang experience ko sa mga Dev Ped. My son was diagnosed na may Dyslexia ito lang Feb 2012 ni Dra. Eusebio. Need niya ng OT and Sped turorial since may dyslexia nga sya. Ngayon kahit papaano nakakabasa na sya ngayon nang 3 letter words. Happy na kami ni hubby sa malaking improvement niya. Nag shift pala ako ng Dev Ped kasi sa new school niya ng may inn-house doctor sila. Dra. Sanchez ng St. Lukes ng ma-assesst sya ni Dra. Sanchez nalaman namin na may mild ADHD ang youngest ko. Ngayon pina take sya ng gamot.

I dont know where to start. I dont even know what Subject to put in this box.

Here goes my story...

I am a mother where last early June I enrolled my child in a regular school. And of course before she was enrolled she was assessed by the school if she was fit for Grade 1. Yes she is in Grade 1, and for that she went to a regular school before during her pre school years. She didn't have any problems in the schools she previously attended, except for one school where she had a bad experience. ( The teacher got mad and spanked her hand because she wanted her pencil to be sharpened, well that was my daughter said ) Moving forward, she attended for a week now, so far I have been called to the principal office because of my daughters behavior.

This is the principal said. Your daughter is running around the classroom. She is not being attentive in class. Dont write or copy the lessons, and she screams inside the room. So we recommend to bring her to a Developmental Pediatrician for her to be assessed.

Her class is composed of about roughly 25 pupils, in which 3 of the students has shadow teachers, and a boy who was previously being a shadowed. ( special too ) This kids are not handicapped or that sort.

Because of my daughters behavior in school, the principal suddenly told me today that they will no longer accept my daughter inside their regular class. Here is the reason why. When my daughter screams, the other boy reacts in a violent manner (this boy is the one who was previously shadowed by a teacher and undergone OT in SPED).

As a mom I am hurt. But mostly I am confused. Yes my daughter has mood swings. I am very glad lately that she had matured already when we are at home. She helps me in everything. She doesn't cry shout and what not. So I am confused why this happened to her in this particular school. She did not have any problems as well in her previous school. She gets along with all the teachers, and her classmates. In this school everything turned gray.

How can this be? They have assessed my child to be a regular Grade 1 student. And for the principal to burst those words to my face was really upsetting. It seems they are prioritizing those special kids. I am not discriminating here, but we are paying the same fees in school. It seems that because those kids reacted that way, they choose to send my kid out. A questions runs to my mind. Kids are kids. And they act as kids. Not all kids are matured. There are kids who shout. Has tantrums. Roam around. So you mean when your kid is somehow that way and you send them to that school, and acted differently, they will consider your child special.

Sorry, I am just trying to get this out of me. This happened just today and really I am upset. Middle of june they will just let my kid be transferred somewhere else?

I hope someone can help me. What are the legal action I can do for this school. I am on the mist of raging back to the school and really look for justice. Really. I hope someone can enlighten me. Just because of what my kid did in school is considered to be what? special? oh please I am really seeking for advice here

Sis, you better see a Dev Ped First...para na rin sa ikakapanatag ng loob mo at para may panlaban ka sa school,in case na hindi nga "special"  yung anak mo.

As a mother,nakakarelate kami sa nararamdaman mo.Sobrang sakit kaya yan.Sa ngayon,kumalma ka muna and ipacheck mo agad siya.

Balitaan mo kami sis ano ang findings...Pag nalaman mo yun, dun tayo mag isip ng next move againts sa school na yan kasi napaka inhumane talaga ginawa.
Title: Re: Developmental Pediatrician
Post by: Mommy Jazz on June 25, 2012, 02:05:55 pm
@inkee, I see 2 sides to your story. 1- The teachers seeing something different on your child, and 2- as the mother, you know your child and she's just being normal like other kids. My POV lang po, both sides are blameless.


As the mother, tayo ang makakapag sabi kung may kakulangan ba ang anak natin o wala. I have met other mothers who said na mali ang diagnosis sa anak nila ng Dev Ped and their kids grew up normal. However, there are also moms I met who are thankful they got to see a Developmental Pediatrician. Let's go over your story po.

This is the principal said. Your daughter is running around the classroom. She is not being attentive in class. Dont write or copy the lessons, and she screams inside the room.... Kids are kids. And they act as kids. Not all kids are matured. There are kids who shout. Has tantrums. Roam around. 
Yes, these are normal traits of a child. Pero po pag pinagsama-sama ang trait na ito sa iisang bata lang and the observation is frequent, then something has to be checked. The Dev Ped is the best person to say if these traits are OK, if the these responses and reactions are OK based on the triggers, etc.

Yes my daughter has mood swings. I am very glad lately that she had matured already when we are at home.
The way your daughter acts differently in a bigger environment outside the comfort of her home is seen as a social issue. The fact that she used to have mood swings and it's on and off, it would be best to know the triggers.


So I am confused why this happened to her in this particular school. She did not have any problems as well in her previous school. She gets along with all the teachers, and her classmates. In this school everything turned gray.
Maybe because of the change in environment and adjustment? Could it be that she resorts to these behavior because she can't cope yet?

And for the principal to burst those words to my face was really upsetting.
Cool lang po Mommy. Maybe the Principal said this because this has been their common observation with other kids before and in the past, their observation has been proven correct. Automatic lang sa kanila na payuhan ang parent based on their experience in the past. This time, Principal may or may not  be correct kasi your instinct says your child has no delay in any way.

So you mean when your kid... acted differently, they will consider your child special.
If someone suggest that your child should see a Dev Ped, it doesn't mean na special ang bata. It could be may delay lang ang bata in one of the 5 areas of development - cognitive, social-emotional, speech, fine motor and gross motor skills.


It is best to educate ourselves. Try niyo po i-sit in ang anak ninyo sa ibang class or school and ask the teacher's observation. Ask the teachers of her former school of behaviors they observed. See for yourself kung may pagkakaiba ang behavior ng bata sa bahay at sa labas and by that, I mean with different, unfamiliar people and setting. You yourself will "feel" if you need an expert's opinion which is the Developmental Pediatrician.


Goodluck!

@Karmela, Nung una kaming nagpatingin sa Doctor, hindi sa Dev Ped kundi sa Mother-Child Psychologist because of my boy's difficult behavior. Una muna ang hearing test ginawa and since responsive siya sa direction ng sound, we knew naa hindi hearing ang problem niya. Like your child, hindi din nagsasalita, puro turo lang ng kung anong gusto niya and express himself in different violent ways rather than just talking.

Na subukan ko nang magpa schedule sa Neuro Dev pero ANG TAGAL NG SLOT. Kaya sa Dev Ped nalang kami nag pa check-up at OK naman kami na since then.

Bilang ina, ikaw na mismo  nagsasabi, ayon sa observation mo, na may hearing problem ang bata so ipa-auditory test niyo na po. This test result will be needed by the Doctor.

Kung sa tingin ninyo behavior lang ang problema, you can see a Child Psychologist like what I did. From there, you will be told if you need to see a Developmental Pediatrician or not.

Goodluck din po

hi sis inkee. first i am a mom of a four yr. old kid diagnosed with adhd accdg. to his dev.ped. dra. manalo.
mahirap tanggapin pero even before ko pa siya i enroll sa pre school. i already challenged myself to see a doctor. my son's ninang introduced me sa isang doctor in PGH tinignan niya ang anak ko and told me na delayed nga,, not only sa speech. so binigyan niya kami ng 2 devped doctors to consult with... we went to see both devpeds. and ayun nga, speech delay and hyperactive siya. we started ot sessions last feb. and then speech sessions last july.
i also enrolled my son sa daycare near our place for socialization purposes


go to see a devped na. matagal mag pa schedule. you might want to see 1 asap para mawala ang worries mo.
2nd i don't think tama ang ginawa ng principal na basta na lang they will not accept your kid.. bawal yan. may batas yan. e ano kung mag sisigaw ang bata. e ano kung manulak at mag tatakbo. pag sumigaw ang bata try na ipacify. pag walang toyo ang bata go lang sa class pag may toyo, edi pull out.

your therapist can help you a lot with that. she can go to the school and talk to the teacher para maintindihan ang situation ng bata.

i hope nakatulong ang post ko

Tantiongco at her Medical City office, the earliest available sched is for May 2013. Then the secretary suggested that they have another doctor which is Dr. Planta with available sched. I 'googled' him but I found nothing, the secretary told me he practiced in Singapore daw. Do any of you here know him? Nagulat din ako ang dali lang magpasked sa kanya. I'm kinda nervous about that but I really want my twins to be assessed na.

He is fairly new sa practice, i think ng-fellowship training sya sa singapore & he just recently came back to practice here in the phils. Siguro naman maganda credentials niya kasi d naman ipaparecommend yan ni Dra.Tippy kng hndi maganda record niya.

hi sis. I've heard about hypotonia na before. My daughter kasi was initially thought to have the opposite of hypotonia, kasi my daughter is stiff naman. namention ng PT ni baby na pag babies with hypotonia, tawag daw nila is "floppy child" or sometimes, "rag doll" kasi para daw doll na limp ang body or limbs. I don't know much about it, yan lang naalala ko sa namention niya.

I guess it's best if you see a Dev Pedia nga or a Rehab Doctor. either one of them will refer you to a PT that can help you with your baby's case.

Sa case ko sis, I first went to developmental pedia. Mostly blood tests ang ginawa sa kid ko - genetic and chromosomal  testing. Then nung ok naman yung results and wala namang problem, the doctor referred us to the neuro child psychologist together with a recommendation letter and the lab tests that were done.

Dra. Carmencita Padilla of St. Lukes QC. Ok naman sha and kaya ako napunta sa kanya kase sobrang hirap kumuha ng appointment sa mga kilalang Dev Ped. Pero matagal na kase yun sis. Mga 3 years ago na. Mas mura din kase singil ni Dra nun compared sa iba.

Yung tests parang less than 5k yung tests. Di ko na maalala. Basta mura lang compared sa iba. Sa NHI kase sa bandang UN pinagawa ni Dra. Binigyan lang niya ako ng referral at instructions kung pano pumunta dun. Mas mura daw kase dun kesa sa malalaking hospitals. Same lang naman daw ang gagawin. Kaya nagustuhan ko din si Dra. kase nag-s-suggest sha ng way na makatipid ako with the same results din naman.

Big kid na yung baby ko, so hindi na sha baby. Negative naman lahat ng tests kaya di na kami nakabalik sa kanya after niya kami i-endorse sa child psychologist.

Me once a month OT na lang kid ko ngayon to maintain na lang yung behavior or attitude and skills. Nasa weaning stage na sha, so eventually puwede na i-stop.

@tubbybeans, try to seek help from dev ped as early as possible. I believe that early intervention for your child is very important. Mas madali kase ma-correct yung delay habang bata pa. I also handled these on my own since my hubby doesn't believe on those things. Ako lang lahat nag asikaso sa kid ko and I'm so happy that he's now ok and excelling in school.  :)

Hi newby here. Share ko lang din my experience. We just went to Dr. Joel Lazaro dev pedia @ asian hospital yesterday. My 18 month old baby was diagnosed with expressive language delay. We were advised to take OT for speech and feeding therapy. But I'm afraid I will try to find another dev pedia as this one wasn't very nice. He was verbally mean while assessing my baby. We were emotionally hurt by the whole experience :(

Hi I'm a newbie here... I would like to inquire sana baka meron kayo ma-refer sa akin na dev. ped. na mabilis magpa-sched? kasi yun nephew ko ni-refer ng teacher niya na magpa-assess before nila ulit tanggapin sa school. sa case niya kasi, pag nasa school siya hndi siya nag-stay sa seat niya.. gusto niya lagi nglalakas sa loob ng classroom, pero pag sa bahay naman hndi naman siya ganon. Dami ko na rin kasi natawagan na hospital and halos lahat sila puno na un schedule, pinaka-mabilis is October pa ang next appointment.Thanks!

Hi i'm newbie here. My son was diagnosed of GDD by Dr. Conducto of PCMC at the age of 2yrs old. Mahal kasi ng bayad 3k and sobrang layo pa sa amin. I switched to Dr. Malijan of Manila Doctors, first and second assessment niya she said also na its GDD. Last year hindi kami nakapag-assessment sa kanya coz the truth is wala akong pera coz i'm a single parent, my son is enrolled in a private school, may tutor sa hapon and therapy session every Saturday ng OT/PT and SPED. On our third assessment with Dr. Malijan grabe ang sungit niya, the whole session with my son hindi sya ngumingiti maybe bcoz hindi kami nagkapag-follow up . Inexplain ko why..though it is just 2k mabigat din naman yun for me and still since 2 yrs old naka-therapy na son ko at hindi ko tinigil yun. The sad part of the assessment she diagnosed my son with Microcephaly with Learning Disabilities. Sabi niya maliit daw yung ulo. She recommended a TESTS,sa hearing, sa opthal, MENTAL IQ and may 2 pang test na mukang mahal. Parang bumagsak ang mundo ko. Then when we got home, I measured his head , its 54cm, he's 7.10 yrs old..I browse the internet as I read 52 to 56 cm ang normal head size ng 7 yrs old to 8 yrs old.  Then I asked her politely that can i get the assessment report that day coz we need the report as a school requirement for a retake entrance exam coz I gonna enroll my son to a new private school. Grabe mga sis ang sungit kesyo mahirap daw gumawa ng report na gipit sa oras. As I remember naman our first assessment with her handwritten yung report nakuha ko din that day. May massuggest po ba kyo na ok na Neuro Pedia na hindi masyadong kamahalan ang PF and hindi harsh? Nakakita kasi ako 1k ang PF. Thank you po!

Hi simplelouise1234
My devpedia is also from Manila Doctors, Dr. Rita Villadolid. You can try her. I think her PF is within the same range as the others but she is very nice to talk to and definitely not masungit.
You mentioned your son was diagnosed with GDD at age 2? What were the symptoms then para masabi na may GDD? My son kasi ganun din pero we need to go back to her in Aug. Sa son ko GDD with ASD as consideration. Dra can't say he's in the spectrum na because he's too young, barely 2 years old when we asked for consultation.  But we are currently undergoing OT 3x a week.

@MyAdie Hindi pa kasi sya nagsasalita that time. Ang nasabi niya lang "TWO". He will say two after i say one. Then 3 1/2 na siya totally nagsalita. Madaldal na siya today as 7 yrs old but then hindi pa rin direcho. Bulol pa. May mga kulang na words like "Gusto ko ng hotdog Mama" not "Gusto ko kumain ng hotdog", yun yung mga tinatama ko sa kanya. May halo pang baby talk. Aproxic ata tawag nila dun. Thanks po sa recommendation, check ko po yung doc. Thanks po ng marami.

Hi Mommies! I'd like to tell everyone that diagnosis is not important. Intervention is.

For moms there who has children affected with Autism, this could be one of your best option: ABA
ABA + Speech Therapy is surely to give the best possible progress
Title: Re: Developmental Pediatrician
Post by: purple_girl on November 15, 2013, 08:43:37 pm
^i agree that intervention is important, but hindi ba important pa rin ang diagnosis? how would you know kung anong interventions ang kailangan if you don't have a diagnosis or at least recommendations ng dev ped?  for me both intervention and diagnosis are important. just my two cents. :)
Title: Re: Developmental Pediatrician
Post by: cherdane on November 16, 2013, 02:07:58 am
Yes po syempre diagnosis is important however, getting intervention is more important. But of course it depends pa rin po for parents. Like there are other parents that they will wait for the diagnosis before sila mag start ng intervention. Meron naman other moms na they will bring their child na for therapy even without the diagnosis yet because they themselves can already tell na may problema ang anak nila.
Meaning po that the diagnosis is not important is, we as parents shouldn't focus and dwell on the diagnosis of our child example if they were diagnosed to have Autism. But we have to focus on what we can do for our child, how we can improve his situation every single day. :)

Hi sis. Yung son ko kay Dr. Malijan..nung una ok siya kasi that time bago pa lang siya sa Hi-Precision. Nung pang 3rd therapy na namin sa kanya..ang sungit na..nagkaron kc kami ng isang beses na hindi kami nakapag assess kasi nga single mother ako, nsa private school with tutor pa anak ko and therapy session every saturday ng OT at SPED kaya hindi ko siya napa assess ulit. Iba na yung nilagay niyang diagnosis sa anak though since 3 yrs old si son GDD diagnosed sa kanya..tapos ngayong 7 yrs na si son bglang sabi ni Dr. Malijan Microcephaly daw. Nung last June 2013 kami nagpa assess kay Dr. Malijan. Nanghingi kasi yung school ng report agad kasi tintransfer ko ibang private school son ko, kaya sabi ko kay Dr. Malijan baka pwedeng makahingi that day. Nagsungit pa rin na kesyo mahirap daw kasi kapos sa oras, pero dati naman yung first and second assessment ko sa kanya hand written naman yun, ngayon nagsungit siya. Kaya ngayon hanap din ako ng bago na devped. Kasi nag ask din ako sa pedia ng anak ko,sbi niya bakit naiba. at tsaka ang measurement ng ulo nagstop ng imeasure yun at a certain age daw parang mga 4 yrs kaya nagulat din pedia dok ko kung bakit ganun. Kaya pinapalipat niya ako sa iba. Wala na nga daw si Dr. Malijan sa Hi-precision, nsa Madocs lang siya. But i heard 2,500 na PF niya dun. 3 yrs ago pa yung 1,800 na PF niya..last June 2013 2k na PF niya. Goodcluck sa atin sa paghahanap ng new doc :)

Highly recommended ko si Dra. Bautista. Nagcclinic sya sa AUFMC (angeles city), st. Luke's and GESU (brgy. Lara, san fdo, pamp)...

My nephew was brought there when he was 8months old. Medyo hindi lang na-maximize yung assessment nun kasi hindi alam ng kapatid ko mga itatanong. Hindi niya ata naiintindihan yung treatment process. She advised them na ipa-OT si nephew nun pero di pinagawa kasi sabi ng family baka daw delayed lang kasi meron kaming relatives na hindi nag walk agad... Hanggang sa napabayaan na yung bata.

Then just recently, kinailangan dalhin sa neuro dev uli si nephew para sa visa niya sa canada and since im a SAHM now, nakasama ako sa mga inaayos. Ayun mega kulit ako sa secretary ni doctora to give me a slot. I tried calling other neuro devt pedias pero earliest na nakuha kong sched is 2wks pa and hindi na abot yun sa sched na binigay ng st. Lukes. Sobrang nag pray talaga ako. Ayun in thursday ako nangulit, monday yung binigay na sched samin. Tapos ang toxic ko pa kasi nagrequest pa kami report na isa-submit sa st lukes ext clinic para sa medical. 

During the checkup, doctora was very accomodating sa mga questions ko. Pati yung dapat i-watch out sa baby ko na hindi naman niya pasyente. Hehe!  She even gave her personal number para maitext ko agad yung results ng EEG and BAER test na norequest niya.

Btw, my nephew was diagnosed CP with GDD. So i told my family na start na namin ang OT as advised by doctora.
Normal ang EEG test pero dun sa hearing test nakita na deaf din pala si nephew kaya di sya nagsasalita :(
Pero we still have high hopes kasi sabi naman ni doctora and nung OT nag iimprove ang ganyang conditions. Iyak ako ng iyak nung OT eval ni nephew.

Ayun, napakwento pa ko ng experience namin. Hehe!

my 26 month old son was diagnosed with ASD last week. I've been reading and researching about ASD since then because I was not convinced with the doctor's diagnosis.

My son loves playing with other kids. He gets excited when he sees children running around and nagpapabibo din sya everytime may bisita sa bahay.

I take him to church and have him join the toddlers group every week. And eventhough the kids do not play with each other that much, my son shares and give out toys to other kids.

He also looks me in the eye when I talk to him. He does focus a lot on his toys, especially if he is very much interested in it. But he looks at me when I call out his name.

Mahilig din sya mag hug at mag kiss. Sya pa nga ang nanghihila sa akin pag gusto niya maglambing. And pag may gusto sya, he lets me know, insistently. 

He does not point at things around when we go out, but he points to pictures in his books. At tinitingnan din naman niya when I point at something.

We'll be having him assessed by an OT but I still am not convinced that he has ASD. 

Any insights sis? I really need answers because I am not sure if I am just in denial.

Hi myjoy,

if i may ask, did you inquire from your devpedia his/her basis for the diagnosis?
Title: Re: Developmental Pediatrician
Post by: myjoy on May 01, 2014, 06:20:31 pm
hi sis MyAdie! this is what happened during our visit to the devped.

Interview sa amin ni hubby kung ano na yung mga nagagwa ni baby. kung pano sya maglaro at kung ano mga ginagawa niya sa bahay.

tapos binigyan niya ng toy si baby. pinakita niya kung pano ginagawa tapos ginaya naman ni baby. tapos after a minute or so, kinuha niya, binigyan niya ng ibang toy. tapos kinuha niya din agad tapos binigyan niya ulet. yung huling toy, nagustuhan ni baby kaya nung kinuha niya, umiyak si baby. tapos pinipilit nung doctor na bigyan ng pencil at paper para magsulat pero ayaw ni baby kunin kasi pinipilit niya hingin ynug toy na nagustuhan niya. sabi nung doctor sa akin, mabagal daw yung transition ni baby from one task to another. pero ang alam ko kasi, kahit sino'ng bata pag kunuhanan mo ng toy na gustung gusto nila, iiyak talaga. eventually, napagsulat naman niya si baby pero after na ibinigay ulet yung toy.

tapos nabanggit ko kasi sa octor na mahilig sya sa cars tapos pinagtatabi tabi niya yung mga cars pag naglalaro sya. Red flag daw yun. nung nag-research ako, yung mga batang may autism, naghihilera ng toys pero nagagalit sila pag nagulo yung nakahilera na toys. eh hindi naman ganun si baby. ang ginagawa niya kasi sa mga cars niya, parang nasa parking area tapos pinapaandar niya isa isa tapos binabalik niya sa pagkakapark. tsaka pag naghihilera sya ng toys, hindi naman yung super ayos. tinanong ko din yung mga kkilala ko na may anak na lalake, naghihilera din naman sila daw ng cars pag naglalaro sila.

tapos nung around 9 months si baby, pag binigyan mo sya ng car, pinapaikot niya yung gulong muna tapos tsaka niya papandarin. sabi nung doctor, sign din daw yun ng ASD.

tapos pag tinatawag niya si baby, lilingunin lang sya tapos hindi na sya papansinin. naka tingin kasi sa labas ng room si baby, pinapanood yung mga ibang batang nagtatakbuhan.

at the end of the session (1 hour) yung diagnosis nung doctor, ASD. tapos recommended OT and ST tsaka hearing test.

ipapa-OT naman namin sya, naka schedule na ang assessment namin next week. napagkasunduan kasi namin ni hubby na ipa-OT na din para makatulong din kay baby. habang naghahanap pa kami ng ibang dev ped.
Title: Re: Developmental Pediatrician
Post by: myjoy on May 01, 2014, 06:31:24 pm
sabi ng devped late daw ng 10 months yung intellect ni baby. pero here are the things that he knows how to do and other things that surprised me.

- when he's hungry, he opens the fridge and chooses what food he wants to eat (parang malaking tao kung maghalungkat sa loob ng ref)

- pag nauuhaw sya, bubuksan niya yung ref, kukunin yung baso niya sa loob at ipapabukas sa akin. he can drink on his own now. nung isang araw, iniwan ko lang sandali, pagkita ko, nagsasalin na ng tubig from pitsel to baso. nakakuha ng baso lying around sa ibabaw ng lababo. siguro uhaw na uhaw, kaya hindi na ako nahintay.  although, may natapon pa ding tubig sa sahig, nagulat ako na alam na nyang gawin yun.

- pag nadidiliman sya, nagbubukas ng ilaw. (yung isang switch kasi sa bedroom namin, abot niya. kaya minsan kapag pinapatayan ko ng ilaw para matulog, nabubuksan pa din niya at ngingiti ngiti pa)

- pag naiinitan, nagbubukas ng electric fan.

- sya na ang taga pindot ko pag nagwi withdraw sa atm. ituturo ko lang kung ano'ng button ang pipindutin niya.

- one time, nung nasa church sya, may batang umagaw nung train na pinaglalaruan niya. akala ko, iiyak o aagawin ulet or makikipag away. pero hindi ganun yung nangyari. ang ginawa niya, kumuha ng mga toys dun sa box, inabot dun sa batang umagaw ng train niya tapos nung nakita nyang busy na sa ibang toys yung babta, kinuha niya ulet yung train niya.

the above are only a few things na nagagawa niya that surprises me and hubby. madami pa syang ibang mga kalokohan na natatawa kami minsan.

nagkukwento ako dun sa devped pero parang hindi naman niya napansin yung mga kwento ko. ang pinagtuunan niya ng pansin, yung checklist niya. kaya talagang torn ako kung may ASD ba talaga yung baby ko, o hindi lang maayos yung diagnosis sa kanya.


Title: Re: Developmental Pediatrician
Post by: MyAdie on May 02, 2014, 11:04:42 am
Hi myjoy,

Yun kasing sinabing red flags ng dev pedia mo, yes red flags yun but not conclusive na may ASD agad. Just like my son, nag paikot din sya ng wheels ng toycars but ngayon nawala na. I think the main considerations to look at is yung social and communication aspects. Ang son ko kasi, at par sa age niya when it comes to cognitive, gross and fine motor skills (sa fine motor advance sya pala unti) Sa social, basta may eye contact (not fleeting) and consistent din yung pagrespond niya to name calling. Pag may ibang kids, nakikipaglaro sya or sumasali sya, good sign yun. Pansinin mo, according to my devpedia kasi, normal reaction ng isang bata na pag inagawan ng toy, makikipag agawan din. Yung son mo, pwede kasing sadyang mabait lang siya kaya hindi nakipag agawan but the fact na inabutan niya ng toy yung ibang kid, way of communication na din yun sa kanya so good sign din yun. Yung mga kaya nyang gawin sa sarili niya okay din yun pero “too much independence” is also a sign of ASD. May time ba na nagpatulong sayo ang anak mo like kaya nyang i-point ang gusto niya? Ang anak ko dati, hindi kaya magpoint.  What he does is get my hand and lead me to an object he likes. Akala ko noon way of communicating din naman yun pero yun nga pag hindi pala maka point, sign of ASD na.  Now, because of OT, kaya niya na i-point yung gusto niya. Ibig sabihin, natututo naman sila dapat lang patient.  Pag dumating ba kayong mag-asawa sumasalubong siya? Good sign din yun.
Yes, right decision to enroll him in OT and SP but I suggest you don’t dwell on the diagnosis muna. I always tell myself na ASD is just a label for my son, hindi yun yung kabuuan niya. Better get also second opinion from another devpedia. Let me know, I can refer my devpedia to you. God bless.

than you sis MyAdie! pag may kailangan sya, hinihila niya ako. kagaya sa baby mo. nagtuturo sya sa mga pictures sa books pero hindi yung mga kailangan niya. pag nagpapatulong sya, ilalagay niya sa kamay ko or hiilahin niya yung kamay ko papunta dun sa bagay. hindi ko naman inisip na iba na pala yun kasi para sa akin, naipapaalam niya kung ano kailangan niya.

pag dumadating ako, sya nagbubukas ng pinto. pero minsan, nagtatampo pag matagal ako nawala. pag dumadating daddy niya, nae excite naman sya at yumayakap agad.

naalala ko, may pinsan pala sya na kaagaw niya palagi sa toys. pag silang dalawa na ang nagsama, palaging may umiiyak. pero yung anak ko, may pagkapilyo minsan, aagawin yung toy sa pinsan niya, tapos tatakbo habang tumatawa. tapos pag inabutan na sya nung pinsan niya, ibibigay naman niya yung toy.

sana madaling mag improve sa pag ot at st niya. yung baby mo ba sis, madali lang nag improve?

kung pwede pm mo sa akin sis yung devped mo. sa antipolo area kami, sana madali lang mapuntahan yung devped ng baby mo. thank you sis!

Hi Mommies,

I hope you're all good. Struggling ako mag-hanap ng Developmental Pedia para sa Baby Yvan ko. Tried calling Dra Reyes and Pacifico, fully booked na til March 2015. Kung may magcancel lang daw eh pwede ako fast track. Hindi ko kasi knew na ganito katagal appointment sa kanila and Yvan still have Pneumonia, treatment and all. Baka meron sa inyo dyan may magcancel ng slot within Manila area or Cavite, please let me know. Searching parin ako online baka meron pa.

Many thanks!

^hi sis, my daughter's dev ped is dra reloza. below is my feebdack which i posted in gt last month (i only copied yung parts na review ko about kasy doc):

on another note, my daughter and i super love dr reloza. she's really nice and answers all your questions, hindi siya yung tipong nagmamadali.  during the session, my niece and i were asked to go out and naiwan si daughter dun sa clinic, kami naman nasa labas lang but naka-open naman yung door so nakikita namin kung ano yung ginagawa nila.  while doing their activities, chinichika ni daughter ko si dra and it was really obvious na comfortable siya. typically, it takes my daughter a long while to warm up to people, she's usually reserved pag di pa niya close and laging nakikita. with dra, sobrang at ease siya kahit 2nd time pa lang nilang magkita, nagkukwento talaga siya and minsan siya pa ang nag-iinitiate ng conversation. dra was a bit late, pero ok lang naman, minsan may  mga nangyayari talaga na out of control natin which leads to tardiness, so hindi naman naging issue sa akin at hindi naman siya sobrang late. nagulantang ako sa daughter ko nung tinanong niya si dra bakit daw ang tagal dumating, very innocent naman yung pagkakatanong niya. after sumagot ni dra, sabi niya akala daw niya pumunta pa si dra sa bank kasi matagal daw pag nagpupunta dun. hehe... all in all, very satisfied talaga kami kay doc. :)

I just want to share my experience after my son's consultation with Dra. Sanchez at St. Luke's. My son was diagnosed na may ASD and nirecommend ng dev ped na mag undergo sya ng 1hr OT 3x/week. She listed 3 therapy centers na pwede ko daw icheck as if we're looking for schools so I did. The problem is, yun lang ang binigay ni Dra. Sanchez. After 2 weeks daw ie-email yung evaluation report so umalis kami ng clinic niya bearing only the list she gave. Walang receipt, walang endorsement note or anything. I checked various therapy centers and lahat sila naghahanap ng note from the dev ped (which is standard daw talaga na may ganung binibigay) pero wala akong maibigay. I called the clinic and the secretary just said ieemail daw 2 weeks after the consultation. I hate na para akong nagmamakaawang bigyan nila ng kahit informal endorsement note man lang to prove na we went to see a dev ped habang wala pa yung evaluation report. Nakakainis talaga, ang mahal pa man din ng binayad ko sa kanya. Hindi tuloy ma-schedule yung initial evaluation ng anak ko sa napili naming therapy center dahil wala akong maibigay. Wala akong magawa but to wait for the doctor's email.  :'(

Not sure if it's because of my post yesterday but the doctor just sent the evaluation today which is a week early. I'm so happy to finally have something I can present to the therapy center and start my son's OT hopefully next week after niya ma-initial evaluation.

Just want to know if any one was able to meet Dr. Jack Herrin? We were able to get an appointment by Mar2015 would like to ask lang kung ano yung mga i-expect namin? kasi first time namin mag pa tingin sa isang developmental pediatrician, My son is 4 y/o yet he has difficulty in expressing himself thru language kaya nag decide na ako na patingnan sya.

Thank you in advance momies, thank God I was able to come across this forum kaya nag register ako agad. I know na this will help me lessen my worries :) :) God Bless!

Hi,

I'm a newbie here. I think my 3 year old son has autism. Para akong pinagbagsakan ng langit. Daming red flags like hindi sya nagrerespond sa name niya. Hindi sya marunong magpoint at hindi sya tumitingin sa bagay na tinuturo ko. Plus nawala yung dati nyang natutunan ng mga words like 'pipip' for 'sleep'. Ang hirap magpaschedule sa developmental pediatrician for tests/diagnosis. July-Sept pa availabale ang karamihan. Pero nakatyempo agad ako for next week kay Dr. Carmencita Padilla. Nagwonder lang ako bakit ang aga ko nakapagpaschedule sa kanya. May experience na ba kayo kay dr. Padilla if okay sya and how much po kaya ang PF. Salamat.

May feedback po ba kayo Sa kanya? May diagnosis po ba agad the same day. Ok po ba sya? Kay dra. Borgaily sana kami una nakaschedule kaso nalaman ko medyo mahal initial checkup sa kanya. Yung isang namin pinuntahang dev pedia wala naman po diagnosis. Itrain daw namin son ko for a month then balik kami for assessment. Parang nasayang binayad namin. Sobrang worried na ko sa anak ko.

Hi, soda1234.
Nirefer din siya ng pedia namin since dra joselyn eusebio's available slot will be on Oct 2015. She said try ko din daw kay dimalanta, kasi june kami wala ng slot for april. mahal sa kanya pero i don't know kung ok nga rin. Actually sa sobrang kelangan ko siya mapaassess since my son is turning 6 yo this august. yung LCSM na school sa dimasalang, may nirefer ng devped daw pero parang special education specialist siya si Dra Cynthia castrillo. Offsite assessment din ginawa niya kaso sabi ng pedia namin mas maganda kung sa dev ped daw. pero since June pa kami naka slot kay dimalanta, nagiisip ako now actually kung sa kanya muna mapaaccess. 6k yung PF niya kasi halos ilang hrs un pag stay sa summer school, sa house namin and then kausapin kami with family.
Baka may iba jan may suggestion kung dapat ba munang maaccess siya sa help ni Dra castrillo kasi. BTW yung summer school ng son ko now is the child's world, psychologist yung nandun, sabi mag IQ test siya. ang mahal pero gusto ko yung practical at ok naman. alarming sakin kasi may nagsabi dapat before 7 yo macorrect siya kung ano man findings sa anak ko.

Hi familywoman. May feedback ka ba about Dr. Dimalanta? Mga how much daw sya? Ano na-oobserve mo sa son mo, if you dont mind me asking? Son ko kasi, hindi marunong magfollow. Gagawin niya kung ano gusto niya. Sa amin lang sya nagffollow minsan. Pero walang authority sa kanya. Hindi sya marunong matakot. Kahit mga teachers niya hindi sinusunod. He's 3 turning 4 next week. I don't know kung nag-oover react lang ako. Baka kasi bata pa and phase lang. Pero yung ibang classmates niya kasi and ibang kids, marunong magfollow.
Title: Re: Developmental Pediatrician
Post by: familywoman on April 22, 2015, 06:08:56 pm
Hi, soda1234,
hmm actually no idea din ako kay Dimalanta. pero sa mga nirefer saking mga devped siya yung pinakamahal. initial niya is 5k, follow up niya after 3 or 6 mos mga 3,500k as per her secretary sa dalawang st lukes. iniisip ko at first baka kaya mahal siya kasi st lukes global pero hindi eh, pati sa st lukes sa qc ganun din pf niya. yung iba kasi 3k or 3,500 initial na un. siya na kasi yung earlies na nakapag paslot ako eh. with regards to my son po, parang medyo matigas din ulo. nagstart na parang ganung siya mga turning 3 yo ata. tapos, super likot niya dati, parang untiring. isip lang namin baka normal sa kids un. Ngaun he's turning 6yo sa August, nag tame down naman compare dati. May times lang na parang deadma siya pag tinatawag sa name niya, feeling namin nagbibingi bingihan. yung speech niya di pa derecho. yung sentence construction niya di straight. parang "mommy di ba sabi di liligo", parang ganyan. Before sinabi ko na rin sa Pedia namin na yung ang likot likot at parang di napapagod. sabi ni dra dy ok lang un, bata eh. observe lang. mag tame down din yan. So sige intay. pero may kakulitan naman parin siya ngaun. But nung nagtry kami sana mapaentrance exam siya for grade 1, umiyak kasi nasita ata ng instructor na mali yung instruction na ginawa niya. Feeling siguro niya napahiya siya lalo't 1st time niya nakita yung tao. So nilapitan ako ng Guidance ng school, sabi kung may something ba siya or nagpatingin na daw sa devped, and they said need ko siya ipaassess para malaman nila in case pano siya ihandle sa school, otherwise, mabubully lang daw anak ko. dun nagstart kaya naghanap kami. recently lang un. Ngaun pinagsummer muna sa sped school, so happened psycho yung directress, and tingin niya behavioral and speech niya medyo delayed. Wait pa din kami maassess ni Dra castrillo next week. Needs coordination sa summer school niya. Naghahanap pa rin ako ng devped. but for now si dimalanta yung earliest namin., di ko pa nasend yung form nila. need ata agad un masend. balitaan mo ko kung sakaling nagpunta kayo kay Dimalanta ha. :)
Title: Re: Developmental Pediatrician
Post by: soda1234 on April 22, 2015, 07:40:32 pm
Hi familywoman. Sure. :) balitaan kita agad kung paano sya. Actually, july pa nga kami nakasched. Pinakiusapan ko lang secretary, send ko lang daw agad ang form then tawag tawag if may nagcancel kaya na-set kami agad. Son ko naman, na-alarm lang kami kasi nagtantrums sa stage nung moving up day niya. Medyo nag-iimprove na sya ngayon. Kaya medyo torn ako kung dala lang ba ng pagkabata or what. Pero he's doing taekwondo now. Hindi din sumusunod sa coach. Yun lang naman prob ko sa kanya. Hindi sya marunong magfollow. Pero he's a fast learner. He knows how to read and write na at age 3. Pero minsan ayaw magfocus. For peace of mind lang din kaya gusto namin pa-check. Minsan kasi parang may mali, minsan parang ok naman sya. So confused ako. Hehe. Sabi nila, the mere fact na gusto mo sya ipa-check, go mo na daw. Anyway, balitaan kita agad. :)

Hi, soda1234.
regarding kay Dr. Dimalanta, sabi ng derma namin, pinunta din daw niya yung anak niya kay dr dimalanta, not sure when, ang sabi niya ok lang daw pero mabilis yung accessment/diagnosis. konting assess daw parang ganun so di ata siya satisfied so nag 2nd option siya kay Dra alexix reyes, un dun daw ok, as in personal niya kausapin yung bata, intindihin etc and wala naman daw diagnosis sa anak niya. PIncheck lang daw kasi ng derma namin yung son niya kasi malikot daw noon. pero wala naman findings. So pinapatry niya kami kay dra Reyes. Yun lang mar 2016 pa yung next unless may magback out. Nashare ko lang :)

Hi familywoman. We had our check up kay Dr. Dimalanta. I wasnt fully satisfied. Nagmamadali kasi sya. Parang I didn't get what I paid for. Hindi nga ako masyado nakapagtanong kasi nagmamadali sya.  May questionnaires  for me and may activities for my son. Basically, na-assess niya based sa questionnaires. Well, my son is ok. Parang behaviorAl lang because madami stressors, like may bago sya kasi sisters and umalis yaya niya. He recommended pa din to undergo OT, for behavioral modification and matuto magfollow. Hope this helps. :) any one knows kaya saan ok na center or therapist for behavioral modification in qc area? Thank you.
Title: Re: Developmental Pediatrician
Post by: familywoman on May 04, 2015, 11:19:40 am
Hi, Soda1234.
Buti minor lang diagnosis kay son mo :). Anyways, ganyan din sabi ng derma namin na nagpaconsult dati kay dimalanta. Nagmamadali daw and thru questionnaires lang and basis and konting tanong. So she had to look for another devped, and nirecommend niya dra alexis kasi one on one daw na tak ginagawa sa clinic and wala naman din daw findings sa anak niya. Kaso, mar 2016 pa yung avail slot. Xempre di ko naman mahintay un so sa June kay Dra Arranz lim kami. But, we had dra Castrillo, sped specialist, to assess first our son last Apr 29. She went to kuya's summer class and to our house to observe. She said, may developmental language delay yung anak ko. so she suggest na mag speech and behavioral therapy yung bata para sabay matreat. there are two centers na narecommend niya, sa West ave and sa Lagro. Not sure pa po sa name ng centers kasi di ko pa natatawagan. they also provide home based therapy but 2 hrs yung nirerequire para di naman masayang yung byahe. Later on, mag group therapy daw anak ko but later pa. She said also, na di naman niya kailangan na mag aral sa sped school pero di paraw dapat sa big school. mas ok muna daw sa small school like Little children's school kaso expensive ata talaga so un ang hinahnap namin sa ngaun yung school na magprovide ng assistance and di naman ganun kamahal. sabi niya sa maranatha daw try din. Baka may idea kayo small schools na nagaaccomodate ng may special needs. Minor lang naman sa anak ko pero di pa siya ideal ipasok sa big regular school. :( Near Blumentritt Lrt area kami pero kung meron sa bandang north caloocan (Near sm fairview/Lagro/bankers) suggest nio rin. please

Hi parents!

This is my first post and I just want to share my thoughts regarding what I have been reading here. I am a speech pathologist by profession and my passion resides on helping parents be part of their child's therapy and progress.

1. You, as parents, are the most powerful people that can change your child/children's lives. Thank you for spending so much effort to help your child.

2. We want your trust. The Dev Peds and your child's therapists are experts in their fields. We have seen hundreds of children with varied diagnosis and skills. We have attended varied seminars, read tons of studies, and have had thousands of hours of experience so we would want your trust.

3. There are bad therapists and intervention around. Make sure the therapist is licensed or certifies. Observe your child's sessions. Build a relationship with the therapist as they would want to help your child. They are in the profession for that purpose in the first place.

4. A child's brain at 7 years old is 90% mature. Sa panahon ngayon mas maganda na maging praning kesa mag antay bago ipa-therapy ang anak. A diagnosis is just a label. It is not a guide, not an end mark, not a sentence to your child's life. The next thing to know after your child's diagnosis is his skills. What he can and cannot do and how to achieve what he cannot do. If you spend so much time trying to figure out if he has Autism or not, the time spent on therapy will be wasted.

Hi, Ms, Speechie.
Thanks for your wonderful advise.
My child was recently diagnosed with semantic-pragmatic disorder, Devped said dapat senior yung humawak sa kanya. mga 10yrs experience. Gusto ko po sana malam kung san kayo located and how much. Required lang siya ng Speech-language therapy.

hi mommies,

i have a 5 year old daughter pumapasok na sya ng kindeer 1 sa isang private school. at first tahimik lang sya classroom pero pag nagiging comfortable na sya sa environment nakikipagsocialize na sya with her other classmates but eventually bigla na lang sya nanakit ng kaklase niya without any reasons medyo hyper din sya at tamad magsulat. di naman namin sya napapalo dito sa bahay para ma addopt yun ganung klase ng behavior. medyo bulol pa din sya magsalita.. i feel so stressed kasi feeling ko i failed as a mom and im not a good mother.

can you suggest any dev. pedia?? and somehow how much will it cost (coz i really dont have any idea how much it will cost to consult a dev ped?)

Good morning mga mommies,

I want to have my 6 year old daughter assessed din po sana.  I have called the office of Dra. Stella Manalo and the earliest slot is on January 11 so mga 4 months pa from now.  May mairerefer po ba kayo na hindi naman ganun katagal yung waiting time?  I want my daughter checked kasi sana as soon as possible.  My daughter is in first grade and just last Saturday, kinausap kami ng adviser ng anak ko about my daughter's behavior in school.  I know na medyo hyper yung anak ko but we were told na lagi nakatayo sya nakatayo sa classroom and always curious about the things inside and out of the classroom.  Sabi ng teacher niya bibo daw ang anak ko but not academically, she's always interested about the things na nakikita niya sa labas or sa loob and would ask questions about it even when they are discussing a lesson.  The teacher also asked us if my child has a hearing problem kasi she doesn't respond kapag tinatawag sya.  Wala naman talagang hearing problem ang anak ko, the problem is, when she is doing something, she's too focused on it to the point na ayaw niya magrespond pag tinatawag sya.  I tested her one time, tinawag ko sya, maraming beses bago sya lumapit sa akin, I asked her kung naririnig niya ako na tinatawag sya, she responded saying "Yes, but I was busy".   Wala naman po syang speech problem, wala din naman syang problem when it comes playing with other kids.  Pero hindi sya makatapos ng tasks sa school like magsulat or sagutan yung seatwork niya. 

Anyway, I would appreciate kung may mairerefer kayo na child development specialist na kaya kami maaacomodate ng mas maaga. 

TIA

Hi, RHODALYN COTILLON.

Parang same kayo ng case ng ate ko. Yung anak niya 11 yo na. Nitong June lang napush na mapatingin kasi sabi ng teachers hirap talga yung bata sa mga subject, may tutor din pero parang wala pa rin. pero ang nangyayari pa pinapasa ng teacher para na lang makaalis sa grade level niya simula ng siguro mga grade 1 sya pero tingin niya hindi dapat. So, nung pinatingin nila may dyslexia yung anak niya. Malapit na sa level ng slow learner pag di pa naagapan. Ang doctor namin is si Dra. Arranz-Lim sa Cardinal Santos. Dun din kasi yung anak ko na may semantic-pragmatice disorder eh.

 I am starting to get worried na rin kasi as yung mga ka-batch niya nakakabuo na ng sentences.
We asked our pedia, she said we should look for pedia neuro to asses our son. Any referral? I heard mahal talaga ang mga consultation feeds. Pls help.

Napaka konti lang po ng Dev Ped sa Pilipinas. Sa ganitong panahong nagmamadali po kayo, I don't think you have a choice pumili ng magaling dahil mahaba ang waiting list ng iilang magagaling at kilalang Dev Peds.

Check this directory nalang I found on the net. Call and ask kung meron silang slot na swak sa sched niyo.

Please help..does anyone know any Developmental and Behavioral Pediatricians in manila or near in manila that i can go to, that can accomodate us without setting up an appointment for diagnosis or screening. We urgently need the results or findings of the doctor cause its for my sons embassy requirement. Hopefully some of you knows any hospital or DevPed doctors that my son can visit on that very day and dont need to set an appointment cause the wait is too long. Thank you for reading and helping us.
Title: Re: Developmental Pediatrician
Post by: Mommy Jazz on September 26, 2016, 10:29:57 pm
There are very few Developmental Pediatricians in Metro Manila that you really need to set an appointment. Swertihan ang makakuha ng maagang sched. What you can do is to set the earliest appointment the Doctor's secretary can give you, then ask that sec to move your sched earlier should there be another patient who would give up their slot.
You can also try calling Manila Med Child Development Center. It is a new center so I suppose they have a short list compared to other known clinics. I am not connected with them nor have I tried their services so I can't say much.
 525-68-36 or 0999 998 8805 (found their nos on the web lang)

@ Mary Ann
Therapy worked for my child. Mas makakatulong at mapapabilis ang development niya kung aalamin ninyo from your Dev Ped and therapist kung ano ang dapat na interaction at pangangalaga sa kaniya sa bahay. Dapat lahat ng family members will cooperate, kasi minsan may mga hindi naiintindihan kung ano ang makakabuti at makakasama sa development niya. Lahat dapat aware.
After some time, le-level up din ang skills niya at babaguhin ang program na para sa kaniya ng Therapist. Until such time na pumantay na skills niya sa age niya, then upon your Dev Ped's recommendation, pwede na siyang tumigil sa therapy.

Post by: Mary Ann on November 27, 2016, 07:45:18 pm
Thanks po sa encouraging word. Hanggang ngayun po medyo confuse pa din ako sa anak ko.

3 years old na po sya ngayun, nakakafollow ng instruction and can imitate sounds like nursery ryhmes, can identify shapes, alphabets and numbers. nakaka follow din sya ng instruction pag may sinsabi ako like kunin niya yung diaper niya, or need niya maligo, pupunta na sya sa bathroom..marunong na din sya kumain mag isa. Tumatawa pag pinapatawa namin, nakikipag habulan sa mga cousins niya, nakikipaglaro din naman pag gusto niya yung laro. pero minsan gusto din niya mag isa.

Ang pinag tataka ko lang hindi ko man lang sya naririnig na mag salita kung meron sya kelangan, hinihila niya lang yung kamay ko pag may gusto sya abutin or minsan sya mismo nag bibigay ng kelngan niya sa akin like kung gusto niya ng dede, iaabot niya yung bote niya at gatas. Tumitingin naman sya sa amin ng daddy niya. Pero pag tintawag ko na sya sa pangalan niya hindi agad sya lumilingon lalo na pag nag tatablet or nanonood ng tv. Pero pag may sinabi ko halimbawa na, aalis na kami or baba na kami (nasa 2nd floor kasi kami) bigla sya tatayo at mag tsitsinelas na, naiintindhan naman niya ako. Un lang hindi tlaga sya nag sasalita. About sa characteristics ng autism, nakikita ko sya nag titip toe minsan, nag line up din sya ng toys before pero now wala na, ang lagi ko nakikita sa kanya ay constant humming or nag huhum sya katunog ng napapanood niya sa tv, tapos minsan nakikita ko din sya yung black eyes niya nilalagay niya sa gilid ng mata niya. Autism na bang masasabi kahit na nakakafollow naman sya ng instruction? Salamat po sa reply.

Mommy Mary Ann, hindi po namin masasabi, you need to check with a Developmental Pediatrician talaga. May mga na describe kayo na signs, meron ding parang hindi pero it is best to consult with a real Dev Ped dahil sila ang nakapag aral ng maraming taon tungkol sa mga bagay na tinatanong ninyo.
Good luck po.

My husband and I had a very bad experience recently with the  DevPed of my son. She is from Cardinal Santos & also has clinic in Medical City. While she has helped with the initial diagnosis of my son's condition 6 years ago, her demeanor in our recent consultation was very condescending and rude even. She made us feel that we did not do our job well as parents and questioned why we continued the interventions that she prescribed six years ago.

Upon assessing our son, it turned out that he is in the appropriate school level for his condition and that his work habits are good which just goes to show that the interventions and support system we provided as parents actually helped!

Nakakafrustrate lang talaga ang kanyang attitude especially when you are already anxious about your child's condition tapos your DevPed who is supposed to give support is doing the opposite. I hope the people in this thread don't encounter the same experience we did.

May directory na ng Dev Ped na naipost dito noon, hanapin niyo nalang or search niyo tapos inquire nalang kayo ng rate. Mahirap mamili ng Dev Ped lalo na kung rate ang basehan kasi konti lang talaga sila.

Hello Mommies! First time ko po mag post here. Thankful at marami ako natutunan dito. My 4/o daughter I can say na delayed speech nga sya. Di pa sya marunong makipag kwentuhan or magsabi ng straight sentence. yung usual lang na naririnig niya like "what's this momma?" O kaya "where are you going?" "What are you doing?" Yan lang. Tapos simple words like tubig, ligo, dede, sleep. And madami pa. Pero sentence wala masyado lalo sa tagalog. So i'm thinking na ipa dev ped sya coz worried talaga ako kasi papasok na sya this june. Baka mahirapan sya. Kasi hirap talaga ako turuan sya example sa writing, parang d niya talaga naiintindihan yung explanation ko. Pero mabilis sya mag pickup lalo pag actions. help mommies ng affordable and reliable na dev ped po. Salamat!

Hi, I have been reading this thread since last December and I have learned a lot.
Just to share, I have a 6 years old adorable boy who I now suspect needs to be assessed. I have been chasing developmental pedia since last December and up to now I can't get hold of a schedule (at least here in Calamba) the doctor's secretary keeps on telling me that there is no schedule available yet 😔 that the doctor has not released a schedule. I visit the hospital daily hoping that personally talking to the staff will make a difference. I know that some may raise an eyebrow and say how irresponsible I am for not having this assessment earlier. I keep on getting judgement from everywhere and I stopped to care. I guess I don't have time to explain to everyone why. I chose to use my time planning out my next move. I am not blessed with abundance of money and I have to live paycheck after paycheck, every penny counts. I guess my only question to everyone (just in case you have answer) first, what will happen when I am gone? After years of therapy will my son be able to stand on his own? Will he be able to defend himself? I remembered when we visited a friend's house, he was playing with a boy 1 year younger than him. For some reason, the other boy decided to play boxing. My son was down to the ground while the other boy punches him. He was not doing anything to fight back but just use his hands to block the punches and his eyes were searching for me. This happened for a good 10-20seconds but it scares the hell out of me as if I am looking into the future. He didn't grew up with kids around but when there are kids he plays well with them but whenever someone hurts him he never complained nor fight back. This thought lingers in my mind and I worry about his future. 😔 Sorry no other avenue to share this to.

^Hello Mommy Ella!
First, I'm glad you're doing the right thing, unlike many parents out there, in denial sila at ayaw ipatingin ang anak nila. Getting a schedule for a Dev Ped check up is indeed hard. There are only a few of them here in the Phils, more so in the provinces. Try getting a schedule with 2 Dev Peds, kahit malayo sa place ninyo. We can't make this work to our convenience.

What's gonna happen next? After your check up, your doctor might require your child to undergo therapy. It may be Occupational Therapy which will address his behavior and social skills, or speech therapy which will develop his speaking, or both. Your Doctor's secretary may even provide you with a list of therapy centers and they will tell you how you and other house hold members should treat and how to help your child at home. Soon he will be able to know more about himself and even how to help himself.

Seems you have a lot of worries which is common for any parent. Take it a step at a time for you not to get overwhelmed. First, get yourself scheduled. Secretaries can't just say "there is no available schedule", they should give the next available sched even if it's a year away.

In the meantime, try seeking help from Autism Society Phils, I heard they have officers in Laguna. Maybe they can help you find a Dev Ped or educate you on this matter before you get a sched with a Dev Ped.

Thank you Mommy Jazz, I appreciate this. I have contacted several outside Laguna and finally managed to get listed on September 21 and October 3. Well that's what I thought that regardless if I'll have to wait for a year I should be listed, I just dropped by Calamba doctors yesterday and was advised the same thing "Dr is fully booked until June 22 and wala pang nirelease na schedule si Doc kaya hindi namin kayo malilista. Tawag tawag nalang daw to check" I am still trying to get hold of others to see if I can get earlier than the sched I got from Manilamed.

I'll check on the site 🙂

Can anyone please help me. I have a nephew who is currently residing in Dubai. The doctor their advice the parents to consult a Developmental Pediatrician. My nephew is 5yrs old. My sister then decided to go back here in the Philippines to have her child check. They will arrive this June 26. Unfortunately, we did not call/booked any schedule from any doctors. Can anyone please help me to direct me to the right doctor and hopefully with available time slot. Thanks

Naku Ms. Jellyfish, medyo late na nga magpa sched. As I mentioned, konti lang sila. Suwerte na yung makakuha ng sched earlier than 6 months. Below is a link to Autism Pinoy's list of Dev Peds. Try calling them each and ask kung kelan ang soonest available sched nila. Usually yung secretary ang makakausap niyo na may record ng schedules. Remember, you need to settle for a Dev Ped na may pinaka soonest na slot regardless kung malapit o malayo sa inyo. Goodluck po.

Hello Mommies! First time to post here! I just need your advise on what to do here :(

My 19 month old baby girl is still not walking very well. Nakakapag walk naman sya mag isa pero super bagal and parang takot na takot palagi pero once na may assistance naman eh halos tumakbo na sya. Pinatignan ko na sya sa Ortho and everything is normal except sa loose daw yung joints and flat footed si baby. Ortho advised na pagawan ng Orho boots and patignan sa Dev Ped.

I went to Dra. Noemi Salazar sa USTH kanina to raise my concerns. Only to find out na delayed na pala sya and dra diagnosed her with GDD. AND, I think hindi naman general yung delayed ni baby, I would agree with her if yung gross and fine motor ang delayed sakanya. My DD knows how to speak atleast 35 words and she told me that ang normal daw for 19 month old baby is 50 words na daw dapat ang alam. I was like, WHAAAT? Seriously?? So, ayun na nga, she referred my daughter to have OT at Core Skill in QC. I think most of the dev milestones are met except nga sa gross and fine motor.

Here's what DD can do:
- Can speak up to 35 words
- Can Play pretend
- Points to picture or object when you call it by name
- Names several body parts (Head, eyes, nose, ears, tummy, teeth, hands)
- Throws a ball overhand
- very sociable (says hi or hello even to strangers)
- can imitate actions/gestures

I dunno if denial lang ako or whatevs, pero I don't think need niya agad ng OT? Feeling ko nga advance pa sya sa ibang aspects...

Any advise mommies??

Hi Mommies,

It's been a while since nag post ako dito. My 3 year old daughter only knows very few words- the usual, mama, papa and some 1 easy word.

Nag pa screening na kami sa Medical City like what her pedia advised, so HR sya ng autism.

Ni refer ng pedia niya si Dra. Mimi Avendano kasi mas cheaper yung consultation fee compared sa ibang sikat na ospital. I called her clinic months ago and we are scheduled on the 23rd of January. I accepted the slot kasi 1- mas cheaper basta wala pang 4k, I remember nasa 2k+ something ata, 2- she was recommended by her pedia.

Pero nag try din ako sa ibang hospitals like St Lukes BGC- MAHAAAALLLLLLL, so sabi ko antayin ko na lang ang January kasi mas makakatipid kami kahit malayo( we are from Makati, sa QC ang PCMC)

Today, her secretary texted me na may available slot tomorrow, kaso nagulat ako na 6k na yung fee. So I called their clinic and matagal na daw yung 6k.

Mommies, I am so frustrated. Kasi sana nag pa book na lang ako sa ibang hospitals kung same fees lang din.

Can someone please recommend a devped na magaling, mabait pwro di ganun kamahal?

Thank you in advance. 😊

Hello mommy yojibear. Nag post po ako ng link to autism pinoy's list of Dev Ped, about 5 messages below yours. Our Dev Ped is Dra. Malijan of Manila Doctors. Hindi siya kasing mahal ng rate na sinabi niyo pero tulad ng maraming Dev Ped, matagal makakuha ng slot sa kanya. Try calling Manila Doctors 558 0888 and ask to be connected to her clinic. Ask the Dr.'s secretary of the rate and available sched. Every Wednesdays po ang clinic niya.

Subject: Hello Guys!
Im Mommy Mhalu and a newbie here. Gusto ko sanang humingi ng konting advice for my baby BRENTHE who is 20 months old now and REFERRAL na rin sana kung may alam kayong magaling,mabait,mura maningil ng doctors fee (kasi mahal daw ang consultation fee ng doctor na ito), reachable and syempre LEGIT na NEURO DEVELOPMENTAL PEDIATRICIAN here in Metro Manila. Taga QC po ako so kahit sana malapit lang din po samin yung Clinic niya. KAilangan ko kasing ipatingin yung baby ko sa NeuroDev Pedia and its much more practical and wiser decision kung for Referral ng ibang Parents. Please help me! Hindi ako makapag decide kung sino ang ppuntahan ko,for this is my first time to seek this kind of doctor for my son.
Im suspecting some delays in his develoments as he grows older and sa pag babasa basa ko sa Web at sa pagconsult sa isang Pediatrician, nalaman ko na kinakailangan niya ng much more assessment ng isang Developmental Pedia.
Kaya sana po matulungan nyo ako kung saan aat kanino ako dapat pumunta.
It would be a big help for me and thank you in advance guys!

Mommy Mhalu💜

Hello Mommies,
Would like to ask if there's a difference between NEURO DEVELOPMENTAL PEDIA and BEHAVIORAL DEVELOPMENT PEDIA.
How are they different?
My son 3 years old was diagnosed with GDD by a Neuro Developmental Pedia. He did the screening test his right ear hears 50db while his left is normal. But she did not do a 1 on 1 assessment on my kid like I often read. He only required my son to do OT. His on his 7th month doing OT and already seeing progress.

Done some reading, most parents go to a BEHAVIORAL ASSESSMENT with a Developmental Behavior Pedia? Will the behavioral dev. pedia gauge how far my child is lagging? Should I switch pedias? I really don't know what to do?

Thank you in advance :)

Hi mga mommies, bago lang ako dito, I want to ask about developmental problem,. Yung anak ko is 30months old na, pero hindi pa sya nakakasalita ng mama or papa, though nakakapagcount sya and nakakapag ABC's,. And kapag tinatawag namin sya by his name hindi sya lumilingon. Pwede na ba sya ipacheck up sa developmental pedia? By the way, he undergo operation when he was 5day old. And pre-mature din po sya. Thanks mga mommy.

Yes mommy. better to have your baby checked na po by a dev ped. Early intervention is important just in case may condition po si baby :)

Post by: Jof Lopez on August 03, 2019, 12:38:49 pm
Yes Mommy!Mas maige na mapatingnan agad sa developmental pediatrician para may early intervention na agad,mas macacatch-up ang anak.
My son is 22 months old.dede,dada,mama and nana(wala na) ang nasasalita niya,he has eye contact naman and can follow instructions.nacheck-up na sya ng developmental pediatrician last july 22(we were so lucky and blessed,nag-inquire lang kami sa hospital dito sa batangas,maagang dumating ang dev ped kaya naaccomodate kami ng secretary,kung magpapalista sa december pa sya machecheck-up)and was diagnosed with global developmental delay.nagstart na ang anak ko ng OT kaso yung speech therapy waiting list pa.mahirap po maghanap ng speech therapist.kung sa palagay mo ay may problema ang anak mo,maige na magpacheck-up,pera lang naman mawawala.at least yung mga duda at tanong magkakaroon ng linaw kapag napacheck-up ang anak natin.
