0 to 3 Years Developmental Health Clinic ( D H C )
Dr. A Jagadish ,Neonatal & Paediatric Early Interventionist (Neuro Developmental Disabilities ) from Hyderabad, India and Dr Meena Chintapalli Developmental & Behavioural Paediatrician ,San Antonio,Texas,USA are developing ApoKOS based 0-3 Years Developmental Health Clinic to optimize learning in all domains of learning ( Physical health, Social Emotional Learning, Language and Literacy, and Cognitive Learning), holistic health and prevent many common Learning, Emotional and Neuro developmental Disorders like Autism Spectrum (ASD) and ADHD. This is a vision and mission-driven approach in early interventions based on the neuroscience research and evidence-based data, with 38+ years of experience, to assure holistic health and optimize and extract the inherent potentials in early child developmental trajectory. We believe that all children deserve to reach their highest potential, express their inherent talents, and be productive in society. Educare is root word for education that extracts inherent strengths with positive character development. Curriculum is designated as Educare Nurture Curriculum for Multi -Sensory Integration.
Health is “Physical, Intellectual, Psychological, Social – Emotional and Spiritual wellness”.
Any gaps in the above mentioned domains of health leads to some or other health related disorders and we can prevent through education and optimize the early brain structural and functional pathways that are formed for life time 0-3 years.
Every newborn is born with 100 billion cells that are ready to connect with the world through the early experiences from birth and these nerve pathways of experience are the primary networks structurally and functionally and are “hard wires” or permanent in life. There are many negative and positive forces and influences in the infant’s growing environment that can cause gaps in learning in all or any domain of health and learning. These gaps are not intentional but missed opportunities. Genes that are risk factors do not get expressed unless the environment triggers the risk genes to get expressed in majority of cases. Even in NICU extreme low birth weight infants we can optimize post discharge networks to optimize sensory integration and learning if there is Nurture and a curriculum.
Every newborn has an opportunity to connect well with world and give back something to the society. 90% of all this happens optimally in the first 3 years, another 10% by 5 years. This is an opportune time to learn how to integrate the senses through experiences that are intentionally delivered by adult caretakers to promote learning in a safe, secure, loving environment with nurture all through the day through routine activities.
We bring neuroscience into daily life application with good relationships and bonding. Positive parenting gives good experiences through five senses in a state of good bonding, relational responsive attachment. This assures good social, emotional learning, intellectual, linguistic and cognitive development with good lifetime outcomes and character.
Understand the principles of sensory integration through teaching parents, give tools, curriculum, also support and help parents build strategies with available resources to optimize learning.
Besides Environmental and Nutritional Epigenetics there are only 2 factors involved in the infant and toddler development
- caregiver competencies B. Environment in which the infant is growing
