Discussion on febrile seizure, neurocysticercosis, behaviour disorders in children like autism and ADHD at HARCON..

Dr. Puja Kapoor,  Director and cofounder CONTINUA KIDS,consultant pediatric neurologist, was invited as a faculty at HARCON 2019, Yamunanagar.   The panel discussion was on febrile seizure, neurocysticercosis, behaviour disorders in children like autism and ADHD.  Thanks to the organising team of HARCON for the excellent academic feast.

Few take home message from the discussion were :

Most of the children diagnosed with autism come to their pediatric neurologist with the concern of exclusive speech delay.

Speech Delay is the only presenting symptom, as other symptoms like inconsistent eye contact, pointing towards object, various visual, auditory, vestibular stereotypes are mistaken as a normal part of temper tantrum or behaviour.

As there is normal gross and fine motor milestones, normal physical appearance, mostly normal intelligence, other symptoms are camouflaged under hyperactivity, causing a false sense of normalcy.

Mostly parents will ask the pediatric neurologist to look for tongue tie or “tantua” ,in local language which is never the cause of speech delay.

Widespread awareness about the red flags of autism will raise the alarm and help the child reach for early intervention at an earlier age.

  1. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)
