The primary aim of the Child Foundation Center is to offer parents peace of mind. A child will first attend for a consultation and then the best methodology for treatment will be discussed with parents/guardians. We believe in the holistic care of every child so we will also liaise with other services in the community.
If your child is attending nursery/school we will contact them and may conduct observations in their academic environment to see what would be beneficial for their progress or investigate any factors that may be hindering your child from reaching their full potential.
Psychometric Testing will be undertaken if neccessary and this is to provide results about your Child's progress and what can be done to help them with their milestones.
We will be with you every step of the way to help advise and offer any guidance needed
