[caption id="attachment_4224" align="aligncenter" width="300"] Natalie Miller - Learning Support Teacher[/caption]   Developmental Paediatrics At Developmental Paediatrics, we have a team of professionals who are available for assessment and therapy for children and adolescents with developmental, learning, and behaviour concerns. Where there are concerns about ADHD, in most instances we believe an ideal assessment structure is a multi-disciplinary team assessment, so that specialists meet you together and discuss your child as a team before giving you feedback together. For under 6 year olds, we do this either as part of an Early Childhood Multidisciplinary Clinic. This involves an initial appointment with a Developmental Paediatrician and a Speech Pathologist or Psychologist, which will determine the direction of further assessment and therapy from our team of experts.  This can include formal developmental or cognitive assessment tools, autism specific assessments, medical investigations, or assessments in speech pathology, occupational therapy, dietetics, and psychology. For children/adolescents age 6 or above, the Developmental Paediatrics School Age Multidisciplinary Assessment Day has been designed as a comprehensive, collaborative team assessment enabling busy families to have their child or adolescent seen by an expert team in one centre. It is a new and innovative model of complete care designed for 6-17 year old children with developmental, learning,...

I offer screening assessments using standardised and diagnostic tools that are designed to identify students ‘at risk’ of reading and maths failure. Parents receive a short 5-page report detailing the outcome, referrals to allied professionals and brief recommendations for learning support staff at school. I then provide comprehensive educational assessments for students that have completed targeted literacy and/or numeracy intervention either at school or with an allied professional. These assessments formally identify specific learning differences, including dyslexia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Parents receive a detailed 25-page report and personalised feedback (via email, phone call or face-to-face) to ensure that they leave ready and empowered to advocate for their child’s learning needs. During my 5 years of specialising in the assessment and identification of learning differences, I have built partnerships with several allied professionals who have the qualifications and skills to help students and their families.

Throughout the trial the school achieved unprecedented NAPLAN results. In the fourth year, the school’s value-added growth (improvement) was the highest in New South Wales for every component of...
