We now have 5 Paediatricians working with our service who are able to provide expert assessments to clients across the UK; in the past 12 months we have completed over 50 Paediatric reports.
Paediatric opinion is usually required to consider origins/mechanism of injury or to assess for the presence of a developmental disorder. This is provide by a triangulation of expertise, physical examination (if possible), photographic evidence, medical records and other relevant documentation such as educational information, which upon analysis provides an evidence based recommendation.
The assessments can also advise on:
- Any further diagnostic testing which might be required, for example, genetic testing or assessment for Autism Spectrum Disorders
- Other professionals who could provide support/interventions for a child, for example, Speech and Language Therapists
- How a child’s development compares to normal developmental milestones
- Can state whether developmental delay is due to organic or non-organic factors
