Empowering practitioners, strengthening communities
Our team and the local community co-created a culturally-sensitive, structured yet flexible solution to assessing child neurodevelopment in remote Australian communities, using primary care as the home point of coordination. This project is funded by the Australian Government Department of Health: Drug and Alcohol Prevention and Early Intervention: Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder Diagnostic Services and Models of Care Grant (H1617G038).
Tiered Child Assessment
Tier 1 cannot be skipped
Tier 2-4 can be done in any order
Tier 5 brings everyone together
Tier 6 specialists can become involved at anytime
Tier 6: Specialist Assessment
Sometimes it is unclear whether a diagnosis is needed. Sometimes the problem is too complex. Sometimes we just need more detailed information about the best way to help a child. In these instances, specialist allied health or medical practitioners will continue the assessment journey and report back to the doctor.
