What is a Paediatrician?
Paediatricians are medical specialists who have completed extensive training and have acquired specialised skills to diagnose, treat and provide medical care to babies, children, and teenagers. Their speciality allows them to deal with illnesses and conditions in children, from infants to adolescents, and their physical, mental and behavioural development.
Why might your child see a Paediatrician?
Paediatricians know a lot about the many different conditions and illnesses that can affect children’s health, welfare, behaviour, and learning. If your child has health or development concerns, Paediatricians are there to provide specialised healthcare for your child and help you understand your child’s condition and treatment.
Your GP might refer your child to a paediatrician for further assessment and treatment of:
- asthma and allergies
- poor growth
- behaviour problems
- developmental delay
- autism spectrum disorder (ASD)
- attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
- sleep problems
- brain conditions – for example, epilepsy
- problems with muscles or bones – for example, developmental dysplasia of the hip or bow legs
- disabilities like Down syndrome, cerebral palsy or Fragile X syndrome
- faecal incontinence or constipation.
