What to expect
The initial appointment at the Toddler Clinic will be for 2 hours and we will use that time to discuss your current concerns. Your child/children will attend this appointment and will be free to play throughout. We encourage partners to attend as often two parents in the same home have different ideas about the same behaviours. With your consent, during this appointment we like to complete a short play task that will be recorded. While this is not a condition for inclusion in the program, it helps us to see how your child plays and how they moves through different tasks.
What to bring
- A drink and snack for your child
- Your child’s “My Personal Health Record" (blue book)
- The questionnaire that will be sent to you upon acceptance into the program
Families with children 15 months to 4 years.
