Children all develop at their own pace, but it is important we check they are development, and should there be any difficulties, identify delays in development as early as possible so that we can target intervention and access to support services from early on, as this gives the best possible outcome for your child.
Even if a disease has been eradicated in the UK, it doesn’t mean that it has been eradicated worldwide. Additionally to keep these diseases at bay and minimise the risk of contracting or a rise in cases, we need to continue to vaccinate for these diseases.
No, there is no link between autism and vaccinations such as the MMR vaccine. There have been many publications excluding any link between MMR vaccine and Autism. Claims that there was a connection came from a publication in the Lancet in 1998 and the Lancet retracted the article later on and the lead Dr for this publication got struck from the GMC register.
Although there is no cure for ASD and getting a diagnosis can be difficult on the whole family, it is well-known that early intervention is key. Getting a diagnosis of ASD enables parents, teachers, professionals to understand a child ‘s difficulties and tailor intervention as each child with ASD is unique with different strengths and difficulties. Seeking out the right support early on can help provide your child with the best long term outcomes.
Mild or Moderate bed wetting often resolves spontaneously as a child gets older, however this is not necessarily the case for children with severe bed wetting or children over the age of 10 years. Bed wetting can have a significant impact on a child with loss of opportunities for social activities such as sleep-overs, school trips, guilt and embarrassment which can lead to low self-esteem. If your child is 5 and above, wetting the bed every night, I would recommend you take him or her to a specialist to advise further.
