Kulkarni, Madhuri; And Others
This paper summarizes a study of 571 children with developmental disabilities between 6 weeks and 12 years of age living in the largest slum in Asia, the Dharavi neighborhood of Bombay, India. Each child was administered developmental and psychological tests, diagnosed, and treated by a special early intervention clinic. Most had not had their disabilities detected before the age of 6 months. Greater developmental screening efforts are called for. (PB)
