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.

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.).
The treatment primarily revolves around breastfeeding and inducement of breastfeeding in adoptive mothers, specific assistance when this form of infant nutrition ends and the supply of additional foods. This medical unit also has a complementary pre-birth referral service.

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.
