Symptoms of organically immature/injured children with developmental deficiencies, aged 3-7, tested and treated at the BHRG Foundation
Very often there are precursor signs to these symptoms that can be observed before the age of 3.
Some of these early symptoms persist or even get stronger above the age of 3.
Other disturbing symptoms might diminish; and some new ones can appear that could signify organic maturation disorder / immaturity.
The table below shows some of the symptoms that usually manifest between the ages of 3 and 7.
Symptoms in the motor areas manifesting between the age of 3 and 7 Symptoms in the psychocognitive areas manifesting between the age of 3 and 7 Symptoms in the social areas manifesting between the age of 3 and 7
- poor movement coordination,
- movement is carried imprecisely,
- significant difficulties in learning new movements,
- movements are carried out too slowly,
- difficulty determining the right leverage,
- dyspraxia, apraxia,
- immature graphomotor functions,
- hindered speech development,
- hyperactivity,
- excessive passivity,

Recognizing these symptoms as early as possible has great significance.
Without adequate intervention, the symptoms can persist and it will gradually become more and more obvious for the parents and for everybody in the child's environment that his or her development, skills and behaviour somehow differ from that of his peers.
Dear parents, should you discover one or more among the above mentioned symptoms that your child displays, please ask for an appointment at the BHRG Foundation.
However, it might also be possible that there is no organic injury behind the symptoms your child seems to be having; in that case, it is some mental or pedagogical factors and circumstances that need to be examined. Changing the environment's attitude towards the child can also lead to positive change (i.e. the diminishing of symptoms).
