Assessment

Assessments:

The integrated health and wellbeing service offers a wide variety of assessments for your child at different ages and stages in the first 5 years of their life. Some of our well used assessments are:

 

Newborn Behavioural Observation (NBO):

The Newborn Behavioural Observation (NBO) is an infant-focused, family-centred relationship-based tool, designed to support parents to understand their baby’s communication and individuality, in order to foster positive parent-infant interactions and develop a positive parent-infant relationship from the very beginning.

 

ASQ3 / ASQ-SE:

The Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ3) is a parent led questionnaire that enables you to assess your child’s development in line with their current age and stage of development. The questionnaire provides fun activities to do with your child and will be sent to you by the team before they visit. Once you have completed a member of the team will go through the questionnaire with you and plan the next steps.

 

WellComm:

A WellComm is a speech and language assessment toolkit that identifies children with a potential language difficulty. The toolkit offers a range of customised activities that are fund and engaging for children to help support their language development.

 

Incredible Years Parenting support:

Incredible years parenting support is an evidence-based programme that develops positive parent-child relationships and assists in preventing behaviour problems and promoting social, emotional, and academic competence before a child becomes an adult.

 

Video Interactive Guidance:

Video interaction guidance is a specialist intervention where the parent is guided to reflect on video clips of their own successful interactions with their child. The process begins by helping the family or professional to negotiate their goals. Asking them what it is they want to change helps to ensure that they are engaged in the process. Adult-child interactions are then filmed and edited, to produce a short film that focuses on the positive.

 

Solihull Approach:

The Solihull approach is a framework in which all practitioners in the integrated health and wellbeing service have been trained. The approach facilitates parents to reflect on their own experiences and find solutions to current difficulties they may be experiencing.
