What to expect

For babies and young infants it is likely we will ask you to undress your child to enable a full assessment of their movement. For older children it is recommended that they have shorts available. Observation is a critical part of the assessment of younger children - exploring their movement through play, therefore we endeavour to provide an environment where they feel comfortable to play and explore.

Initial assessments will last an hour. For children under 5 years of age it is recommended that you bring their red book to enable a comprehensive history to be taken.
