In addition to offering personalized care for each paediatric speciality, Paido Children’s Health reinforces its medical attention through its specific treatment units for the areas of child and adolescent health that require special knowledge and care.

These units are characterized by being multidisciplinary, such that different specialists coordinate with each other to deal with the possible pathologies from different spheres of action.

Bearing in mind the profound changes in physical and intellectual development that occur at the onset of adolescence, Paido Children’s Health offers a consultation and holistic specific care service for adolescents starting at age 12, which provides the child and their family with a unit that offers medical treatments, gynaecology and psychology specialised in the prevention, early detection, evaluation and treatment of possible disorders during a stage of enormous psychological and physical changes.

Children’s development is determined by the acquisition of a series of skills at specific ages. Sometimes there may be a delay, or children may have difficulties acquiring these skills. In these cases, precise, early diagnosis is important to help guide parents towards appropriate individualised treatment so that it is easier to prevent future difficulties and a child’s evolution improves.

This unit, designed for children aged birth through 4, is made up of an interdisciplinary team that offers diagnosis and treatment of developmental disorders, as well as advice to parents and teachers. It also provides a programme to monitor children with potential risks (from premature birth, chronic diseases, neurological diseases, etc.).

This unit provides children with the most cutting-edge technology in the early detection of deafness. The Auditory Evoked Potentials (AEP) test yields perfectly reliable results which quickly, painlessly and easily allow any possible dysfunction in the auditory organs to be identified just 24 hours after the baby is born.

Early diagnosis of deafness, that is, a diagnosis made before the child turns three years old, allows treatment to be applied quickly, which minimises the consequences that auditory problems tend to generate in the child’s communicative, social and cognitive capacities.

Head of the unit: Dr. Josep Maria Cubells
