Early Childhood Developmental Assessment

Do you have a preschool-aged child and have found yourself saying, “I have concerns about my child’s development but I don’t know what to do?” Perhaps you feel when you compare your child to another their speech seems a bit behind, or their listening skills are lacking.

North Shore Pediatric Therapy is here to help. Our Early Childhood Developmental Assessment is geared towards toddlers 3 and under. In this assessment your child will be evaluated by a licensed speech therapist, occupational therapist and neuropsychologist to address areas, such as:

  1. Speech development
  2. Sensory processing
  3. Social/emotional/behavioral development

Our goal in this assessment is to give you peace-of-mind and a plan for the next steps. To do that we break it down to a 3-part process:

Initial Intake

The first appointment will consist of an intake and the neuropsychological evaluation.  At the intake, parents will discuss their concerns in detail. In addition, you will go over the background and medical history with a Neuropsychologist. The first evaluation will take place after the intake on the same day.

Assessment

The next step is the for the child to have an assessment with a speech language therapist and an occupational therapist.  Afterwards, the team will round again to conceptualize the case and develop treatment recommendations.

Results

In this meeting, the Neuropsychologist will review the results of the testing, team findings, and possible treatment recommendations
