The question is very pertinent and provide a good discussion. Many clinics have observed an increase in the client flow, but we would have to wait and watch the trend in the coming months as the clinics open up. As Dr.Subramanian discuss, we might not need to intervene much and the children should get back to normal as the schools open up and they get to engage with their friend and other children. 

Thats get us to the conclusion of the blog series on Developmental Pediatrics with Dr.Subramanian. We hope you enjoyed the series as much as did in presenting the series.
