Whatever your developmental concerns for your child or baby, there are tools you can implement today to help while you wait. Each GP at Baby Steps is specially trained in child development and can offer medical guidance, assurance when you’re on the right path, and gentle guidance and direction when you’re not. Should your child require allied health therapies, the Developmental Progress Consultation can facilitate quicker access to the appropriate service providers.

Diving into the Developmental Progress Consultation

With this specially designed 30-minute appointment, parents can get answers to their child developmental concerns while they wait for a Paediatrician’s assessment. Your GP can help you navigate the child development system and shed some light on how to meet your child’s social, emotional, and educational needs. They provide education on what constitutes ‘normal’ baby behaviour and ‘typical’ child development, as well as parenting strategies to complement your child’s language, communication, and physical development .
