Kimberley O’Brien and Jacqui Olsson attended a training workshop on the assessment of infant and toddler development using the Bayley Scales on Monday, 8th March at Westmead Children’s Hospital.

The Bayley Scales of Infant and Toddler Development (Bayley-III) are recognised as one of the most comprehensive tools to assess children as young as one month old, to approximately three and a half years old. The assessment covers five key areas of cognition, language, social-emotional functioning,  motor and adaptive behaviour.

The workshop was facilitated by Betty Hutchon, one of the world’s leading occupational therapists. She has been the national trainer for the Bayley Scales of Infant Development II since 1994 and has provided training, advice, and consultation to many research and clinical groups.

If you believe your infant or toddler may require a developmental assessment, please contact us to arrange an appointment.
