Pediatric clinical last week:
I visited a mother with her child 3 years of age. I had to assess the environment, do vitals on the child and do a wellness check up. My biggest observation was that the child was not talking yet, not even a single word. He had some type of developmental delay. The boy was adopted and the family also recently moved to a new state. So many things going on, with mother going to school and pregnant at the same time. Boy was able to follow command, do as he was told, but just won’t talk yet.
How can i relate this to one of the questions above?? Choose one topic and integrate. Simple as possible.
