Developmental Services at KidsInclusive
A developmental assessment is a specialized process where the goal is to learn more about a child’s developmental profile. Through this process you will learn more about your child’s developmental strengths and needs in areas such as speech and language, motor skills, play, social skills, behaviour, and early learning. A developmental assessment may result in your child receiving a developmental diagnosis such as Autism Spectrum Disorder, Global Developmental Delay, or Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder.
Our developmental assessments are provided by professionals who specialize in assessing developmental disabilities. Sometimes the assessment may involve more than one professional to help support the needs of the child and family.
