How do I know when to get an assessment?

- As a parent/guardian I feel as though something may not be right
- My GP/ Paediatrician/ Child Care Professional is concerned/has noticed differences in my child’s development

What do I say? What do I ask?
I am concerned about…”
“I have noticed/seen…”
“I have heard…is this true/false?”
“What does this mean?”
“What will this process entail?”
“What can I do to help?”

How do I prepare?
I, the Parent/Guardian, can prepare by:
- Explaining to my child (all ages) that he/she has an upcoming assessment, well in advance

- Arriving on-time, so that no one is frazzled
- As applicable, having all parents/guardians present at all meetings
