My 3 years old son has difficulty in speaking, he can babble but can’t speak and point his finger towards the desired objects. Instead he use to take us by holding our hand to the desired object example towards AC switch or Refrigerator door. He can’t even speak Mama, Papa and can’t point when asked about them. Had a poor eye contact. He is physically fit with all emotions, plays game on mobile. He has been doubted with ASD but the assessment is still pending. We have been advised to do BERA and EEG Tests which appears normal. His MRI report is has some deviation from normal which needs to be understood. Investigation: MRI Brain Plain Results: Multiplanar Mr. imaging of the brain was done. TIW, TSE-T2W and FLAIR images were obtained in three orthogonal planes. The study shows small hyperintensities on FLAIR involving peritrigonal region/occipital region on both the sides, possibly incomplete myelination Rest of the brain parenchyma appears normal. The basil cisterns and superficial subarachnoid CSF spaces are normal. Ventricles appear prominent. The mid brain, pons and medulla are normal. The cerebellar hemispheres are normal. Visualized parts of the sella, 5 th, 7 th and 8 th nerve complexes are grossly normal on routine brain imaging. Major flow voids are present. Advice: Clinical Correlation. Please help me to understand the report. Regards,

You should ignore all non verbal requests & child will express verbally may not be very clear in begining but. This will improve with time. Communicate with him verbally in correct way wth patience. Leaving him amongst other kids is also very effective way to develope speech.

Hair growth is slow in small kids. Oil the scalp regularly. Feed him proper nutritious food. Hair growth will get accelerated. If it does not happen then consult trichologist.

Common Orthopedic Disorders In Children

Sometimes children suffer from conditions where their feet may not be in proper shape or size, something that can affect their posture. Most of the times the disorders get corrected themselves as children grow up, but there can be situations where medical attention is required. These conditions can be normal variations in the anatomy as well which don't essentially require treatment. Some of the common orthopedic disorders found in children include:

1. Flatfeet

While most babies are born with flat feet which develop arches as they grow, in some case the arches remain underdeveloped even after they grow older. Their feet may turn inwards while they walk due to their flat nature. There is no inherent problem in this condition unless it becomes painful. Doctors may recommend special footwear with arches inserted for support to reduce the pain.

2. Toe Walking

Toe walking is not a disorder while your child is just learning to walk. Toddlers who continue to walk on their toes after the age of 3 may require medical attention. Toe walking on one leg or persistent toe walking can be due to other medical conditions like muscle weakness, cerebral palsy or autism. It is advisable to take your child to a therapist for casting the foot and ankle which can help stretch the muscles.

3. Pigeon Toes

In toeing or pigeon toeing is common among babies when they are first learning to walk. Sometimes children above 3 years walk with their toes inwards which can be due to femoral anteversion. This happens when upper part of the leg bends more than it naturally should, causing inward rotation of the feet. Specially designed shoes and braces can help to correct this condition. Usually, the condition corrects on its own with age and does not interfere with sport activities which involve running.

4. Knock-Knees

It is a common tendency among children aged between 3 and 6 to develop knock-knees (genu valgum), since their bodies go through natural shift in alignment. Usually, treatment is not required as the legs straighten out eventually. Knock knees on one side or persistent knock knees may require medical attention. Children with this disorder may suffer from pain hence in some cases surgery is recommended after the age of 10.

Baby is having congenital heart disease. Such babies have difficulty in gaining weight due to recurrent infections and breathing problems. Furoped is given for the heart condition. If your Dr. has prescribed it then it should be continued. Kindly meet a cardio thoracic surgeon for need of any surgical intervention. Also regularly meet a cardiologist to evaluate the heart condition and needs for other antifailure drugs if needed.

If he drinks 2 cups of milk in a day, it is more than sufficient, excessive milk reduces appetite, may cause iron defeciencies, he should eat rotis, and everything made at home, including dal rice vegetables, fruits, his weight is appropriate for his age, he is ok, you need not worry, we have come to be in a habit of unnecessary worry, try to avoid this, relax.

It is more of an art rather than science. No medicines are going to help to improve appetite of active healthy child of which weight is not the only criteria. Take meals together in family along with the child. She will imitate parents. There is no instant way. Keep loving, stop forcing, she will pick up your habits.

Well your diet schedule looks almost perfect. Except egg white shall be better as yolk is full of cholesterol and no protein. Protein is only in egg white. 2. Milk powder. Nan pro 2. Or lactogen2. But having said that. Cow milk (tetrapack) also shall be a great option. Low cost 3. Add more carb and sweet food. To have better growth along with proteins.
