Developmental assessments are administered when a parent/carer or health practitioner are concerned that a child is not meeting their developmental milestones appropriately. Development is measured across core domains including:
- cognitive development;
- social and emotional development;
- physical development;
- language development;
- adaptive behaviours including self-care and self-direction.
The assessment is undertaken to identify areas of strength and challenge so that an appropriate management plan can be developed and recommendations provided to carers and where appropriate educators.
Our comprehensive developmental assessments are appropriate to diagnose:
