Dr. Jayshree Kumta will walk you from start to finish through what happens when a child comes in for medical treatment, from the medical care provider’s perspective. What subjective information is gathered from the child and family? What objective information is gathered in a typical physical examination, how is that documented, and what does it mean? How do doctors make a diagnosis? How do doctors document child development, functional limitation and disability? In a usual treatment setting, who else besides the doctor interacts with the child and family? What are their roles, what documentation do they generate, and how is it accessed? What additional resources do doctors have available to assist child patients and their families? Attorney Kevin Liebkemann will discuss the significance of the information Dr. Kumta provides to the handling of disability claims.
