Support your child's development

family

A new ‘Child Development Service’ kicks off next year in the ACT supporting families with concerns about their child’s development. This may include concerns with speech and language, movement, hand skills, self care, social or emotional development.

The new ‘Child Development Service' will provide assessment and referral for children 0-6 years, as well as children up to 8 years with complex needs and who have not had a previous diagnosis. An Autism assessment is also available for children aged to 12 years.

Some initial therapy sessions for children who are not eligible for the National Disability Insurance Scheme will also be provided.

An Intake Service and Drop-In Clinics for parents and referrers to seek information and advice will be available in Holder from January 2016.
