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.
