Abstract

Monitoring of neuro-evolutive development from birth until the age of six is a decisive factor in a child's quality of life. Early detection of development disorders in early childhood can facilitate necessary diagnosis and/or treatment. Primary-care pediatricians play a key role in early detection of development alterations as they can undertake the preventive and therapeutic actions necessary in the interest of a child's optimal development. The focus of this research paper is the construction of a Knowledge Base for smart screening aimed to assist pediatricians in processes of early referral in language disorders. The proposed model provides health professionals with a decision-making tool that supports referral processes. In this way, essential diagnostic and/or therapeutic actions are triggered for a comprehensive individual development. The resulting system was developed on the basis of an analysis and verification of 21 cases of children with language disorders.
