Referrals are accepted for:

Pre-school aged children (12 months to school entry) with suspected developmental delay and/or Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

School-aged children are seen on a case-by-case basis or complex learning difficulties/ASD. These children should receive an assessment by their school counsellor and a language assessment by a Speech Pathologist before being referred to this service.

Referrals are accepted from:

  • Paediatricians and Paediatric Neurologists
  • Allied Health staff within SWSLHD

I have concerns about a child’s development but I am not a Paediatrician, Paediatric Neurologist or an Allied Health professional in SWSLHD

Make sure the child is referred to:

Communicate your concerns to these professionals. They can do further assessment and/or intervention and make a referral to the Child Developmental Assessment Service when appropriate.
