When your child is not reaching their developmental milestones at the same pace as their peers, you cannot help but worry. It can be really difficult to know if you are overreacting and things will sort themselves out in time, or if there is an actual problem that should be looked into further.
An Assessment provides you with information about how your child is performing in comparison to the expected developmental norms for their age. It will help you to understand exactly what areas your child may need more support to develop and provide you with recommendations about what to you can do about them.
An Assessment provides peace of mind because you will know if there is anything to be concerned about. If your child is experiencing delays in any areas, you will have the information that you need to take the next step to help them to continue to grow in skills, confidence and enjoyment in participation.
