Child Development Service


The Child Development Service (CDS) is a specialist team that takes referrals from other professionals. We are reserved for clients that have complex developmental problems e.g. Global Developmental Delay, Autism or an Intellectual Disability. 

The Child Development Service is established to provide Diagnostic Assessment for children with significant developmental problems, which may be prolonged, complex or serious in nature. The children seen typically have delays across multiple developmental domains such as movement and coordination, communication, socialisation, self-help and problem solving.

Most developmental issues are identified and managed by local health professionals, without needing referral to the Child Development Service. Click on the links below:
