Healthy children can have undetected physical, psychological or behavioural issues which can impact on their education and development. Our Kids Check process is designed to identify these so that we can facilitate appropriate early interventions.
This type of check is ideally performed before starting school or during the early school years but it is never too late.
We have designed a parent questionnaire and a thorough assessment to inform you and your GP of any potential underlying issues.
This clinic is conducted by an experienced Speech Pathologist who has worked with multidisciplinary teams assessing and managing such issues in children. The assessment conducted by our Speech Pathologist will identify potential issues and inform the child’s parents and usual GP so that the appropriate next steps can be facilitated.
This program is evidence based and thorough and is a worthwhile activity for all children to undertake.
