Technology-Assisted Early Disability Identification and Monitoring in Children: A Model for Middle- and Low Income Countries
Keywords:Disability, Early Identification, Early Intervention, Assistive Technology, Children
The initial 1000 days after birth is the period of major brain development. It is found that children with various neurological, musculoskeletal and developmental disorders and those “at high risk of disability” show early identifiable signs and symptoms. If an appropriate level of intervention is initiated at an early age, when neuroplasticity is at the maximum, a great extent of positive changes could be brought in their overall development. Recent advances in the technology could be used for early screening and monitoring of children. The authors discuss a technology-assisted early disability identification and monitoring system ideal for middle- and low-income countries.
