The pathways and processes for parents of young children with global developmental delay or disability can be complex and stressful. The diagnosis of intellectual disability has lifelong implications, not only for the person them self but also their family and community. Understanding and dealing with these issues can be challenging for all involved.
This resource has been developed to assist early intervention staff in the Inner West support families through the process of diagnosis, particularly at the time of diagnostic assessment. It will contribute to improved confidence of early intervention staff, and is part of an overall strategy designed to enhance interagency collaboration and recognise the different frameworks and approaches of diagnostic and intervention services as we work together to support the child's and parent's journeys. It is designed to facilitate conversations between early intervention and diagnostic services and between early intervention services and parents.
