Developmental Evaluations

Developmental evaluations focus on early childhood development and related skills, including early motor and language development, social skills, and development of self-help skills. Since young children often vary in the age at which they develop certain skills, many parents wonder whether their child’s developmental milestones are within the expected range, or whether there are developmental delays that require additional support.   Therefore, the purpose of the developmental evaluation is to sort out complex developmental questions, determine whether there are specific areas of concern regarding your child’s development, and construct an intervention plan that will help your child reach their full potential.
