List of Developmental Pediatricians in the Philippines

You are probably in this page because you are looking for assessment for your child who is at risk or your pediatrician encouraged you to seek a professional’s opinion.

 

Dr. Banaag – Father of Child Psychiatry here in the Philippines

Below is a list of developmental pediatricians and psychiatrists in the Philippines who can help you learn more about your child’s special needs.

 

Before we go to the list, I think its important that we define these professions here:

Developmental pediatricians are physicians (doctors) who address special needs or special care issues for children with special needs. Sometimes they are called neuro-developmental pediatrician.

 

Psychiatrists are medical practitioners specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.  They are doctors.

 

Clinical psychologists are psychotherapists or a therapist who deals with mental and emotional disorders. They are not medical doctors like the first two but they can get a doctorate degree in their profession. 

 

Special Education Diagnosticians are specialists or experts in making diagnoses. They can be medical doctors or veteran practitioners in their field.

    Would appreciate it if you could give a list of practitioners in Region 8 (Samar and Leyte) for referral purposes.
    Thank you

  7. Coach Arman says:

    I have been coaching special children with down syndrome and autism. One organization said that their sport is non competitive and for fun.
    In my experience a medal given to a special athlete even for attendance brings big smile and sense of fullfillment.. the spirit of competition is alwàys there since having your own bowling ball,bag, shoes creates the competitive spirit.
    I am a certified bowling coach with PBC and USBC and find great fullfillmen t with my special athletes. Still not much have been done with special tournaments for special athletes in the Intellectual Disability category.

  8. Joan Dote says:

    Good day! I am a special education teacher currently working in a public elementary school.

  17. Ann says:

    Can you pls recommend a good Developmental Pediatrician in Mandaluyong? Or in PCMC? I dont know if its ADHD but my son has trouble focusing his attention in writing notes in school. But academically and writing skills are great. He is actually on Top 3 of whole grade 1. But according to his teachers, he has tendency to drift (like daydream) during lectures, and makes “kutkot” his pens, erasers instead of starting to copy whats on the board. It is only when the teacher calls his attention that he begins to write. Yes, he can finish, but finishes late. I dont know if this is a behavioral problem or maybe its just because he hasn’t matured yet. Should i have him checked by a Developmental Pediatrician? I am so worried for my son. Pls. advise. Thank you so much!

  18. hi.i just want to know whats the cost of getting neurodevt?
