Emotional Baby Checkups aim to evaluate your child across several important psychological dimensions including:
- Social and Emotional Functioning;
- Language Development and Communication;
- Personality and Temperament;
- Secure Attachment;
- Attention & Cognitive Development;
- & Motor Development.
The checkups are not a formal developmental evaluation of your baby or toddler. Rather, they are a brief screening. Additionally, they can be considered a therapeutic contact, as babies and young children develop within the context of relationships with caregivers. Ultimately, emotional baby checkups aspire to promote more competent and joyful relations between young children and their caregivers.
Formal developmental psychological assessments are longer in duration and the results are typically summarized in a written report format. Thus, the cost of formal developmental psychological assessments is usually considerably higher.
