@slovy, sa Manila Doctors Hospital, there is a center for developmental pediatrics.  Sa PGH Doctors' Building (new building ito at maganda ang clinics according to my husband), mayroon ding mga dev pedia.  Call the hospital trunklines na lang.

Kahit nakalakad na ang son mo, there is no harm naman in keeping the appointment para ma-check din yung ibang aspects of his development.  Hindi lang naman gross motor skills ang kailangan subaybayan kasi.

My sons are in preschool already and my husband and I decided to make their check-ups with their developmental pedia a regular thing.  Every 6 or 9 months, we go to Dr. Tippy Tanchanco.  Just being pro-active. :)

Just had our assessment done for my almost 4 year old yesterday... under Dra. Manalo :)  Ok naman... may slight language delay lang ang son ko (processing questions) and slight na needs improvement pa sa fine motor skills nya...

I intend to make it a regular thing na rin, esply if I'm going to homeschool... just so I can really get an expert tell me if I am overlooking other things

I'm just kidding lang sis, syempre itutuloy ko pa rin hehe.


Main concern ko lang din naman kasi is yung paglalakad lang nya. Nag bababble naman kasi sya, at nagrerespond naman sya sa lahat ng bagay at madali rin syang matuto, manggaya. Yung  paglakad lang talaga.. Pero para nga makasiguro, ipapacheck ko pa rin. Thanks sis ha?  :)

wala naman mawawala if papa check up natin ang mga anak natin at least may peace of mind na tayu....

hi marose, i was actually trying to pm nyo, but since newbie ako hindi pa allowed. anyways, may daughter right now is on a home based ot and ok naman ang ot nya [textspeak!] she's an ot for 7 years sa shine. we pulled her sa thera because ala ng maghahatid sa kanya and working na ako. may home based st din sya from teamworks naman and at the same time may school sya. it seems hectic ang schedule nya pero [textspeak!] ang sabi ng mga teachers nya she needs consustency pa esp sa behaviour nya. may mga nasasabi na sya kaso bulol and madalas pa din sya magsalita ng non sense. matagal ba talaga maover come un ng bata? her st is about 4 months pa lang namna....and also as suggested s ibang forum i bought her dr. seuss and as easrly as now my 6 mnths old son eh binabasahan ko na din....


lately [textspeak!] sobrang worried ko sa kanila, well i guess hindi mawawala un esp mommy na nga. sabi naman ng friend ko baka nga daw post partum lang since i gave birth nga...

^ Sis, ilang taon na ba ang anak mo?  Give her time.  4 months pa lang naman siya nagte-therapy. 

It also helps na lagi mo siyang kakausapin and hindi mo anticipate her needs.  For example, kung may kailangan siya, encourage her to verbalize.  Huwag yung iaabot mo agad ang kailangan niya.

How is she in school?  Does she interact with her classmates?

My sons were delayed talkers too though not delayed naman na kinailangan ng speech therapy.  Kasi at par pa rin sila may slight delay lang and good ang receptive language nila dati per Dr. Tippy.  Between 2.5 and 3.5 years old, they had an explosion of language.  Biglang dumaldal (nakatulong na rin kasi pinasok na namin sa preschool when they turned 3), ang daming alam na words, naging super interested sa books (oh, they couldn't get enough of them!) and ang daming tanong.  It helped that me and my husband and my mom plus our helpers engaged them in conversation all the time, they had limited tv time (1-2 hours a day only and supervised iyan so may kasamang kuwento at comments from an adult while they're watching), nag-school sila and their class is composed of mixed ages so may older kids in class na mas talkative sa kanila and they were exposed to a lot of books at home and also when we go out sa mall, we usually hang out in the bookstore.

hi sis, she's 3.4 na...

she's in school na actually i've spoke to her teacher ayun nga nag improve na daw sya talaga. (last year naka enroll din sya same school, repeater sya since sya ang youngest sa kanila before) kapag may bago daw sya nakikita eh tinatanong, un na lang talaga ang kulan un sentence na lang...medyo hirap sya pero kapag sinabi ko sa kanya nasasabi naman nya.. her previous yaya [textspeak!] hindi sya kinakausap binibigyan lang sya ng tv..at least ngaun un helper eh kinakausap sya. sinasabi ko nga na kapag may kailangan ask her what she wants bago ibigay...hubby [textspeak!] not always here, so ako lang and helper eh im working din...

before hindi sya nakikipaglaro sa ibang kids and when she's starting ng ot ayun medyo nakikipag laro na din sya sa ibang kids. kapag weekends pinapasyal ko sila magkapatid para maexpose din, wala [textspeak!] kalaro sa amin eh. actually mahilig sya sa books kaso kapag kabisado na nya nagsasawa na sya...so i need to buy another books again,... but i found nga un dr seuss na books na ok compare sa baby einstein na book...(any suggestion pa na books or activity sis?)

thanks a lot marose, and all the sissies it really helps me a lot...

thanks sis swtgrl! 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.

@feelingera,  I suggest you also schedule play dates with cousins/classmates or neighbors for social development.  Toys that stimulate a child in the proper way and help develop fine motor skills are blocks (Lego, Megabloks), Zoob, Playmobil sets (for pretend play), play dough, tea sets.  Engage her also in coloring and painting.

For speech development, when you tell stories, ask her questions from time to time to test also her comprehension. :)

@otsowaloeyt08, call Dr. Tippy's secretary from time to time to check kung may nag-cancel.  Her name is Rose.  Do you have her mobile number?  I can send it to you via PM. :)

So, Php3,000 pala for the initial evaluation?  For the follow-ups, Php2,500 ang PF.

mga sis...

ask ko lang. nung nagpa-assess kayo sa dev ped, how long did it take? kasi we went to a dev ped kahapon and my son was diagnosed na papuntang ADHD. i have no problem with that. i was just surprised parang sandali lang yung evaluation. kasi reading from your posts sa previous thread, parang may iba almost 2 hrs in-assess yung anak nyo dba? why yung son ko wala pang one hour?  :-\  as in, he was just asked a few questions, made to copy a pattern with blocks, write his name tapos that's it. wala pang 30 minutes. tapos he was diagnosed with being delayed 8 months for his age? parang unfair. haha. am i just in denial? i don't know if i expected too much lang kasi mga feedback from GT parang tagal ng assessment ng dev ped nila. i felt i didn't get my money's worth, eh ang mahal php 2500, wala pang 1 hour tiningnan? hirap kaya kumita ngayon.  :'(

^ Yes, medyo mabilis ang assessment ng anak mo, especially since first time.

Sa kids ko kahit follow-ups at least 45 minutes to 1 hour.  Si Dr. Tanchanco ang DP nila.

How did the DP explain to you the basis for her diagnosis?

...basta she just pointed out that at my son's age he's supposed to be able to answer the question asked him na. parang isang pasada lang lahat, if hindi makasagot yung anak ko, hindi na nag-try pa ng iba within that scope. she had parang a score card with her, and according to that ata, yung naging assessment na may developmental delay.

i was kindda shocked that the assessment ended so soon, honestly. we were there around 4pm, nasa parking lot na kami by 5pm. so less than an hour malamang kami sa kanya, eh ang dami pa naming questions nun ha, so the assessment parang 10-20 mins lang siguro?

nagkatinginan nga kami ni husband nung tumayo na sya dun sa kiddie chair eh, as in, yun na yun. eh alam namin ang mahal ng babayaran namin. :(

^Yup I agree, seek 2nd opinion, if you're not comfortable or satisfied with the first one. Mahal nga lang pero if it will give you peace of mind and satisfaction, why not. Yun nga lang, ang hirap magpasked but - go sis!
don't feed the troll!

we have another appointment na talaga sa ibang dev ped. we just went to this dev ped kasi sya lang ang may open slot this month. kay dra alexis reyes, next yr pa kami slotted. pero nakakasisi ata. anyways, husband says we take her recommendation din para hindi masayang assessment. tutal kahit kami naman admittedly eh nalilikutan na sa son namin. :)

pero pwede ba diretso sa therapy center? i mean, this dev ped recommended a therapy center pero parang hindi nice yung facilities. gusto ko dalhin ko sa ibang therapy center. tutal ia-assess din ulit sya ng OT dun dba?
