Growth Problems in Adopted Children

Occasionally, children adopted from other countries may have slow growth and developmental delays from inadequate care and nutrition. These children may need special help and more calories than usual to catch up to a level that fits their age. Adoption agencies can put parents in touch with support groups for those in similar situations. Your pediatrician will help with advice and referrals to specialists if they’re required.
