Women's and Children's Hospital 72 King William Road Room 202, L2 Samuel Way Building North Adelaide, SA 5006

The aim of this one day workshop is to build on participant’s knowledge of the 6-9 month and 18-24 month health check. The focus of the day will be on assessing development using the Ages and Stages Questionnaire and how this relates to the information gathered in the health assessment. Through simulation we will consolidate understanding of how the theory is used in practice.
