Dear Mr Munir,
delayed crying at the time of birth could result in delayed milestones. The reason being it could result in loss of oxygen
to brain during that time and also could permanently damage a part of it.The advantage of approaching a clinical psychologist
or a psychiatrist
is that they can assess the damage done and suggest suitable remedies.Sometimes the damage is irreparable and the child may remain slow learner throughout his life or what is known as mentally retarded in common parlance. In that case, he has to go to a special school which has special educators because he will not be able to cope in normal schools. The advantage of visiting a clinical psychologist is that they will do the relevant tests and assess the child. In your case, it might not be that bad but atleast you will rule out the possibility and will be able to help him at the right time. ADHD
children have symptons like :
Be easily distracted, miss details, forget things, and frequently switch from one activity to another
Have difficulty maintaining focus on one task
Become bored with a task after only a few minutes, unless doing something enjoyable
Have difficulty focusing attention on organizing and completing a task or learning something new or trouble completing or turning in homework assignments, often losing things (e.g., pencils, toys, assignments) needed to complete tasks or activities
Not seem to listen when spoken to
Daydream, become easily confused, and move slowly
Have difficulty processing information as quickly and accurately as others
Struggle to follow instructions.
