The following guides may assist you if you are looking for information on developmental milestones and when to explore supports for your child. In all instances, if you have questions or concerns, you are encouraged to raise these with your medical practitioner or local community supports, such as Ontario Early Years Centre, child care or school personnel.
Nipissing District Developmental Screen (Looksee Checklist)
The Nipissing District Development Screen is a developmental screening tool for infants and children up to 6 years of age, to be completed by a parent or health/child care professional.
The Sensory Checklist is accessed from the book “Raising a Sensory Smart Child” by Lindsey Biel and Nancy K. Peske. As written, “Children with Sensory Integration (SI) Dysfunction - a condition that does not allow the body to properly process sensations - often display delayed motor, speech, and social skills.”
Red Flags is a Quick Reference Guide designed to assist early years professionals in deciding whether to refer for additional advice, assessment and/or treatment. Information on community services is included in the guide.
