Because of the #COVID19 pandemic and the varied community quarantine guidelines across the country, face-to-face consultations with the developmental pediatrician may be difficult to do. The developmental pediatricians of the PSDBP now offer teleconsultations. Here is a list of developmental pediatricians offering teleconsultations. Please note face-to-face consultations may be done provided that strict sanitation guidelines and screening procedures are followed.
The Philippine Pediatric Society (PPS) and the Philippine Society for Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics (PSDBP) have come up with an article, “Supporting Children and Teens During the COVID19 Pandemic.“
During this pandemic and period of understandable anxiety, Pediatricians have to provide support for the parents of their children. Children and teens are extremely vulnerable at this time and are not spared of the stress and anxiety brought about by the situation. Parents should be guided on how to talk to their children and teens about COVID 19 in words that are appropriate to their age. They should also know how to support their psychological and developmental needs while in quarantine.
You may find download the rest of the article here.
We would like to share some resources from the National Center for School Crisis and Bereavement ‘s COVID19 Pandemic Resources Page. The Center’s Director, Dr. David J. Schonfeld, was recently a speaker during last December 2019’s IDPA Congress held in Manila.
You may find the link to their website here.
REGISTRATION for the International Developmental Pediatrics Association (IDPA) Congress is now officially OPEN.

The Philippine Society for Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics joins and supports the Philippine Pediatric Society on its position on House Bill No. 002. A nine-year old does not have the capacity to fully discern what is morally right and what isn’t, enough to subject them to the criminal justice system. If a child becomes capable of performing such acts, there is definitely an underlying aversive experience outside of their supposed innocence that has influenced them to become that way. We understand concerns on juvenile criminality though. But right family values, proper parenting and efficient social services may deter rise in abandoned and neglected children that are endangered and prone to criminality. Lowering the age of criminality to nine is no panacea.
Therefore, efforts of government and the justice system should focus on the responsibility or role of parents, school and the society in the prevention of juvenile delinquency.
