Developmental Assessments - will provide answers to a variety of questions about your child’s development. As part of the assessment a child will participate in different standardized tasks and play activities so that the clinician can observe a variety of skills and behaviours. 
Assessments may take place either in clinic or in the community. At the end of each assessment parents will have a chance to review all of the information gathered and receive a report with next steps and clinical recommendations. The assessment will evaluate a full spectrum of potential diagnosis and is not limited to ASD.
