- Common childhood allergies
- Understand the developmental needs of children from the common emotional and behavioural symptoms of infants and young children
Speaker: Dr Daniel CHIU, Dr Lilian WONG
(1) Common Childhood Allergies
Allergy is one of the common diseases among children. The red, itchy rashes found on children’s skin could fear many parents. Some children may even show difficulty breathing, leaving parents with panics. Dr. Chui will introduce different types of children allergies based on actual cases, and advise parents the general home treatment methods, when to seek medical consultation, and how to prevent risk factors of recurrence.
(2) Understand the developmental needs of children from the common emotional and behavioural issues of infants and young children
The first few years of life are the most important period for a child’s development. Children will learn and gain experience to promote different aspects of development, such as gross motor, fine motor, language, cognition, and social interaction. Dr. Wong will discuss the common emotional and behavioural problems of young children, understand the developmental needs of children with parents, and discuss how to effectively support children’s early development.
