A developmental assessment is conducted to ensure your child’s ability to meet expected milestones and perform everyday tasks.

During infancy, a child’s gross motor, fine motor, language functions and social-emotional development is assessed.

During earlier childhood, the assessment aims to identify a child’s strengths and challenges in a range of developmental domains including cognitive, social, emotional, language, physical development and adaptive behaviours such as self-care and self-direction.

Screening tools could also be specific to a disorder such as autism. If the screening test identifies a potential developmental problem, a more detailed evaluation will be necessary to investigate whether the child needs treatment and early developmental intervention.
