The chance to chat with professionals about your child’s development is on offer as the NHSWI Allied Health Professional (AHP) team invite all to a series of free and informal Child Development Drop-In sessions.

The service has been created for parents and carers who wish to seek advice regarding their child’s development, and has been set up to give parents improved access to professional advice and early intervention.

Families may want to ask about their child’s general development, their child’s behaviour, the way their child moves, or their communication and language development.

At these informal sessions, where no appointment is required, parents will have the opportunity to speak to a Physiotherapist, Occupational Therapist and a Speech and Language Therapist about their child’s development.

Providing general information, advice, support and helpful tips, the AHP Child Development Drop-In sessions are held from 10.30am to 12.30am in the Soft Play Area at Lewis Sports Centre, Stornoway.

Drop-In sessions will take place on Tuesday October 9th; Tuesday October 23rd; Tuesday November 13th; Tuesday November 27th, and Tuesday December 11th.
