Child Developmental Assessments
What are Developmental Assessments?
Developmental assessments are a comprehensive evaluation of a child’s physical, intellectual, language, social and emotional development. They are usually conducted when a parent, educator or medical health professional identifies that a child is experiencing difficulty in one or more of these areas. A referral for assessment is not required, however it can be in the best interest of the child to work closely with other medical and allied health professionals to uncover areas of developmental difficulty. A developmental assessment can be used to uncover the nature of the developmental concern and to carefully target interventions to assist your child toward their optimal development.
