Why we do it. 

85% of brain development occurs in the first five years of life. This is why early identification of childhood developmental delays and difficulties is so important, in order to promote life-long positive outcomes for children, families and communities.  This critical period, impacts your child's  motor, language, learning ability, formation of friendships, and their overall lifelong physical and psychological well-being.  All children and families should have prompt access to early assessment and interventions, and this is our aim. If you are concerned for your child's development, or wish to understand and support your child's behaviour better, please get in touch to book an initial consultation.
