Developmental Assessments / Surveillance
Current paediatric recommendations advise regular developmental assessments to ensure any problems are identified early and appropriate interventions are undertaken.
We would recommend routine developmental assessments in well children at 6 weeks, 12 weeks, 9months, 18months and 24-30 months.
These assessments look at your childs growth and ensure that their gross motor, fine motor, speech, understanding and social and emotional development are in the normal range. Early identification of developmental disorders is critical to the well being of a child and it allows for appropriate therapeutic interventions if an issue is detected.
If there are concerns about your child’s development we can provide complex assessments. We take referrals from the HSE services, public health nurses, occupational therapists, psychologists and following school assessments.
