Paediatrician in Neuro-Development, Attention-Hyperactivity and Behaviour
Dr Chester Tan is a passionate Paediatrician in Neuro-Development, Attention-Hyperactivity and Behaviour who gets down to the child/adolescent’s level to understand, listen and interact with them. Dr Tan will advocate for children and adolescents for their needs regardless of its complexity.
He will see any areas related to child development, behaviour, adolescent development/behaviour, the developmental/learning needs of those with medical issues, those with gifted skills, social difficulties, attachment difficulties, emotional challenges, child/adolescent relationship issues, anxiety, trauma, unusual behaviours and many more. He has specific interest and skills in approaching ADHD and complex ADHD being part of the Complex Attention and Hyperactivity Disorders Service (CAHDS) previously and is keen to look into both non-medication and also medication approaches. Dr Tan is familiar with medication uses for the management of child/adolescent behavioural/mental health issues. He does the Paediatric component of Autism assessments. He has seen through various complications which can result when developmental conditions are not recognised and intervened.
He advocates for early intervention therapies for all developmental conditions. Whenever possible, he will explain the neuroscientific theory/hypothesis behind which provides children/adolescents and their families great understanding of these.
Dr Tan attends local and international meetings to understand advances in neurodevelopmental interventions and treatments. The scientific nature of each individual's brain is very unique, where Dr Tan strives to narrow down the understanding through careful assessment.
Dr Tan would recommend identifying developmental issues early in order to provide the necessary interventions early, which will then create a strong foundation for children in their adult life.
