Behavioural / Developmental Paediatrics

General Paediatrics includes the assessment and management of all aspects of child development and behaviour. This includes physical, emotional, mental health and general wellbeing.  Infants, children and adolescents will often be referred with complex presentations that include:

  • Developmental delay
  • Challenging behaviour including anger management and aggression
  • Oppositional behaviours and parenting challenges
  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
  • Social difficulties
  • Learning difficulties
  • Anxiety, depression and other mental health problems
  • Tic disorders including Tourettes disorder

Developmental and behavioural assessments frequently use information gathered from multiple sources. With family and guardian consent, paediatricians will often liaise with schools, kindergartens or childcare centres as well as allied health professionals (psychologists, speech pathologists and occupational therapists) to more comprehensively understand your child. These assessments may require more than one consultation and may require time to collect all the information required for a comprehensive assessment.
