Multidisciplinary assessment

Multidisciplinary Assessment 

We offer families of children from 2 to 11 years of age an appointment to meet us in the multidisciplinary clinic. This is an appointment where you and your child will meet with two appropriately trained professionals in order to explore your concerns, take a comprehensive developmental history and at the same time undertake a play-based assessment.

The team is usually made up of a paediatrician (children’s doctor) and an occupational therapist or speech and language therapist with specific neurodevelopmental expertise. However, we are sometimes joined by other professionals as well.

The appointments last for between one and two hours. At the end of the appointment, we will feed back our observations to you and make a plan with you for any further assessments that may be necessary. You will also receive a summary report.
