"Our Division of Developmental and Behavioural Paediatrics offers multidisciplinary service committed to providing holistic care for children with developmental, learning and behavioural difficulties.

At our Child Development Unit (CDU), we assess and manage children from birth to 7 years old (Kindergarten 2 and below) with a range of learning, behavioural and developmental needs at the Jurong Medical Centre and Keat Hong Community Club. These include: Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD),Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder - ADHD (Children), Speech and Language Disorders, children with Hearing Impairments, Developmental Delays, Specific Learning Disabilities (i.e. Dyslexia, Developmental Coordination Disorder, Specific Language Impairment), behavioural difficulties, and children with chronic illnesses at risk of developmental delays.

We understand and value the role of empowering your family in our care. CDU has family-centred and community-based clinics where we use the Brazelton Touchpoints approach in working with children and families."
