PGD-DN(Post Graduate Diploma in Developmental Neurology)

Justification of the course
Advances in perinatal care and the establishment of neonatal nurseries have improved the survival chances of many newborns that would otherwise have succumbed. This tends to increase the chances of childhood neuro-developmental problems, speech problems, behavioural problems, attention deficit hyper kinestic disorder and scholastic backwardness. Very often their problems are identified quite late, may be at school age when only some rehabilitation measures can be taken, which do not necessarily bring out the best in the child. Child Development Centre(CDC) Institute of Distance Education 79 Prospectus being developed as a national Centre of Excellence in clinical child development has involved feasible strategies for a policy change towards “proactive”anticipation of childhood disability rather than a “passive” attempt at provision of rehabilitation services alone. CDC has visualized a “Conceptual Framework” of a valid link between Childhood Disability, Low Birth weight babies and Adolescent Girls” Under Nutrition and have demonstrated conclusive scientific evidence for the “Conceptual Framework.” CDC was Succesful in demonstrating that 40 % reduction in poor mental and physical performance can be brought about by, CDC model early stimulation for low birth weight babies” The National Neonatology Forum and the Indian Academy of Paediatrics have strongly recommended that in hospital having special/ intensive neonatal care service, it should be mandatory that the hospital offer neuro - developmental follow-up and early stimulation services. It is in this context that Child Development Centre proposes the masters course in developmental neurology through distance mode.
