Special Event


COMMUNITY DAY
Since 2011, we have been organising free screenings for those suspected to have developmental delays. Find out more below:

What is a Developmental Delay?
It is an ongoing minor or major delay in the process of a child's development. The child may not be progressing at the same rate as other children the same age. It can occur in one or many areas of gross & fine motor, language, social or thinking skills.

Why is developmental screening inportant?
It identifies and establishes conditions associated with developmental delays. It also identifies the children at risk for developmental delays who should receive more intensive assessment or diagnosis.

Who can receive this screening?
Children as young as one to six, with no prior diagnosis, whose parents or teachers suspect something amiss in their development.

When is the next Community Day?
Our next Community Day is scheduled to be on the 29th of April, 10am to 4pm.
