Overcoming Stroke In Children Aged 2 Years?
at the age of 2 years my child experienced high fever until he entered the ICU.
Hello Mrs. Kama,
Thank you for the question.
Monitoring of children's growth and development needs to be done early and continuously. This is because if there is a disruption in the growth and development of children early, the intervention can be done earlier. Impaired speech and language development often occurs in children aged 3-16 years. Impaired speech and language development will cause speech delays. A child is considered to experience speech delays if the child's speech development is slower than children his or her age.
The causes of speech delays can vary, such as environmental, hearing impairment, cognitive, neurological and psychological functions. In children with speech delays it is necessary to take a special approach before diagnosing speech delays. The child will be examined for medical history, physical examination, and language test. If the child has certain disorders or certain diseases such as: neurological disorders, genetic diseases, metabolic diseases, and mental disorders, the child will be tested for hearing function. If there is a hearing loss, it will be treated accordingly.
In children with previous strokes, it is necessary to know exactly which part of the brain was affected by the stroke. The human brain is divided into cerebrum, cerebellum, and brain stem. The cerebrum consists of the right brain and the left brain. Each hemisphere consists of 4 parts (lobes) with different functions:
the frontal lobe is responsible for behavior, emotional regulation, speech, muscle movement, concentration, alertness, and intelligence
Parietal lobe is concerned with language, response to pain, touch, and temperature
The occipital lobe is concerned with vision function
memory and hearing temporal lobe.
Further consultation with a pediatrician is required to determine the cause of speech delays in the mother's child. After knowing the exact cause of your child's speech delay, then you can determine the right therapy for the mother's child.
Hopefully my explanation can help mom.
Thanks. Greetings, dr. Kresnawati Wahyu Setiono
