Assessment (1 to 5 Years)

Assessment (1 to 5 Years)

An assessment is a systematic way of getting to know your child’s developmental strengths and challenges. It is an opportunity to describe your young child and any concerns you may have.

Guided by your knowledge of your child, assessments help determine the Island Health services and programs that will help promote the health and wellbeing of your child from 1 to 5 years.

Who does an assessment?

There are many health professionals at Island Health who are skilled in assessing your child between the ages of 1 to 5 years.

Depending on your individual child, an assessment may only involve a speech therapist. Other assessments may need a team of professionals such as occupational therapists, physiotherapists and psychologists.

Does my child need an assessment?

If you are wondering if your child needs an assessment, contact your family doctor, pediatrician, public health nurse or an intake worker at Queen Alexandra Centre for Children’s Health.
