Developmental Delay

Developmental delay

Developmental Delay means that a child is behind in some areas of development, such as:

        • – Physical – gross, fine motor
        • – Cognitive –problem solving, visual perception, sequencing etc.
        • – Communication – how the child understands what is said and how the child uses sounds, words or gestures to let others know what he/she wants.
        • – Social/Emotional – behavioural difficulties, difficulties with social interaction etc.
        • – Adaptive Development – self-help, including feeding and dressing skills

      What’s involved in a Developmental Assessment?

      A Parental Intake with Dr Sarah Collins to gain a better understanding of  Developmental History will also review any previous assessments with other clinicians such as Paediatrician’s/ Gp’s/Consultants.

  •  Cognitive Assessment: if a child is under the age of 3 we carry out a Bayley Assessment. (carried out with full  MDT Team)
  • Feedback to parents with regard to outcome of assessments and recommendations and referrals which may need to be put in place for future care or future educational need;
