At BTC a comprehensive, holistic play-based assessment is conducted within a family-centred approach before we initiate a treatment plan. This first assessment aims to determine:
- The baby’s positive attributes and resilience factors.
- The development status that the child has already achieved.
- Possible barriers to normal development.
- What the family needs.
- A baseline from which we will commence intervention.
The team conducting the first evaluation consists of a Physiotherapist, Occupational Therapist and Speech-Language and Feeding Therapist. The team recommends possible treatment and management options for the family and determines goals for intervention in conjunction with the parents/caregivers.
