Children are innately curious and explorative. They are constantly keyed into their environments using sense organs to seek stimulations and experiences. In simple terms, the accumulation, modulation, assimilation and utilization of those experiences constitute development. Comprehensive development in children is a sum total of

  1. the experiences
  2. the unique ways in which each child integrates individual experiences and
  3. the environment (family, school, society, nation etc) in which a child is growing
Each child is endowed with a unique and different capacity to integrate the multitude of stimuli in its environment. Therefore, it can be concluded that comprehensive development is a sum total bidirectional transactional interplay between the child and it’s environment.

Any disruption with a potential to hamper child’s environment can disrupt the equilibrium between child and it’s environment and lead to various manifestations at various ages/stages in the child’s life.

The role of speech therapist, occupation therapist and child psychotherapist arise in this context.

These requirements, for the child is at times concurrent and at times inputs from a single discipline can help resolve the issues on hand. However, this requirement can be decided only after the child is thoroughly evaluated by a qualified child & adolescent psychiatrist, preferably those in a multi-disciplinary set-up and with a super-specialty in child & adolescent psychiatry. The following section will discuss the contexts in which children need the support of speech therapist, occupation therapist and child psychotherapist/child psychologist.

  1. The disruption due to pandemic is multi-pronged and protean, to say the least. Pre-schoolers (children under 5 years) are affected in terms of speech, socialization and academic skills. A major portion of their life is being spent in the disruptions due to pandemic and hence their comprehensive development has stagnated/not progressed (regressed in some cases). Increased screen-time in children is leading to delayed developments in cognitive, motor, speech and social milestones thus warranting an early assessment by speech therapist, occupation therapist and child psychotherapist/child psychologist; as the case may be.

  2. Development of children in the age group of 5-12 years is also getting hampered due to the disruptions caused by the pandemic. The direct harm of reduction in syllabus and hours spent at school is huge. Even children good at studies have started lagging due to the reduced hours. The opportunities to socialise has dwindled manifold due to the closure of schools in particular and restrictions on socialization in general. This has resulted in impaired development of academic as well as social skills. This effect is compounded in children with pre-existent academic difficulties/social-skill deficits but have not sought/been offered help in so far. This can in-turn lead to emotional and behavioural difficulties. This is yet another context where children need to utilize the services of speech therapist, occupation therapist and child psychotherapist/child psychologist.

It has certain critical phases and windows where they are vulnerable due forces tending to throw their development off the expected trajectories. Therefore, speech therapist, occupation therapist and child psychotherapist/child psychologists are integral parts of a multidisciplinary team and are key participants in the comprehensive and integrated and holistic development of children as they help in rectifying the trajectories which are deviant due to several reasons.
