Stepping Stones Behavioural Consultants can provide Developmental assessments, Speech and Language assessments and referrals for Occupational Therapy and full diagnostic assessments.
Stepping Stones Behavioural Consultants are also qualified to administer and code the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS-2) which will assist and form part of the diagnosis procedure.
Formal assessments can provide baseline information of developmental milestones and regular reviews. These allow progress and development to be tracked so that interventions and programmes can be appropriately modified.
The assessment of a child's skills is an integral part of the process of learning and teaching. It is used to monitor progress and inform future planning. The assessments will provide practitioners with accurate information on each individual’s progress, by recognising strengths and acquired skills of children as well as identifying and supporting weaknesses and absence of skills. Clients are assessed upon entry to see what developmental skills are present and which require instruction, providing a baseline of learners’ repertoires. Stepping Stones Behavioural Consultants evaluate every child's needs using a variety of assessment tools including the Verbal Behaviour-Milestones and Placement Program (VB-MAPP).
