Provide outpatient services for children 0 to 18 years of age, with Neurodevelopmental disorders including learning difficulties and intellectual disabilities, Sensory impairments, autism, attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder and other emotional and behavioural problems.
These assessments will be conducted within a multidisciplinary and multiagency model. Recommendations for the management of the child’s needs and appropriate intervention at home and school will be made. The aim is to offer an integrated and structured program for early detection, referral, assessment, diagnosis and intervention of affected children.
The Department of Children’s Medicine will closely network with its partner, HMC (HGH, Women’s Hospital and Heart Hospital) in Doha. In addition, it will also network with the primary care services (e.g. PHCC) and secondary care services at Al Khor Hospital, Al Wakra Hospital and the other hospitals in the HMC network. HMC will provide secondary level of care for Pediatrics (general pediatrics), level II PICU (17 beds) and up to level III NICU.
