Transdisciplinary Intervention: Ideas in Action is the theme of the 3rd International Developmental Pediatric Congress here in Manila. 

The congress will focus on bridging the gaps in the management and intervention of developmental and behavioral disorders through an approach that transcends disciplinary boundaries to come up with innovative models especially needed in middle and low-income countries.  

International and local experts in the field will share their knowledge and experience on various topics. These will be the start of the relevant exchange of ideas and discussions, further enriched by selected research presentations from various disciplines involved in developmental pediatrics.
