IASO Children’s Hospital enriches its services and continues to strengthen its medical potential by providing high quality medical care to each child. The new Child and Adolescent Development Unit aims to assess children's physical changes, from neonatal period to adolescence, and respond to parental questions such as whether their child develops at normal or delayed pace. It is important for parents to know how they can contribute to the health, well-being and development of their child; how to strengthen their child's self-esteem, encourage their skills and activities and understand their feelings. Child development disorders include low stature, high stature, skeletal and metabolic disorders, etc.
