Little Baby Clinic And Developmental Assessment Center

Child Development Center

LittleBaby Child Development Centre was established to provide much needed high quality, specialised and affordable assessment, treatment, education and support to children with disabilities, and their families and carers, to enable them to lead more independent lives.


We provide occupational therapy, physiotherapy and speech language therapy assessment and rehabilitation to children aged 0-16, in order to help them to meet their developmental goals. We work to ensure the children achieve their optimum potential, that maximal function is achieved and the effect of disability minimised, so that they may overcome many of the barriers that they and their families face.


Looking after children with disabilities or children with special needs places huge burdens on families and carers. LittleBaby Child Development Centre also provides training, education and support to families, carers and communities in the care of children and young adults with special needs.


LittleBaby Child Development Centre also serves as a focal point for information, advocacy and networking for familes and communities in the area, providing relevant information to empower the community to make informed decisions about their health. In addition, we lobby and advocate for fair policies and laws that affect the daily life of the disabled community through research, networking and strategic alliance building.

LittleBaby Child Development Centre offers a unique intervention in children with disabilities lives through a holistic approach that aims at "Helping all children reach their full life potential".

Physiotherapy helps to restore movement and function following injury or surgery, relieve pain and help prevent or limit physical disabilities and improve developmental delay.


By using a number of different approaches and techniques, a physiotherapist can help a child overcome an injury, rehabilitate following surgery or short term health problems or help manage long term disability. They can also advise on splinting, equipment and help with problems that you may be experiencing at home or at school.




Our physiotherapists are highly experienced in assessing and treating babies, children and young people with a wide range of injuries and disabilities. This includes, but is not limited to:


Cerebral Palsy

Acquired Brain Injury

This is caused by injury or illness, and can affect fine and gross motor movement as well as speech and language. It may lead to educational challenges and changes in behaviour.

Paralysis

Occupational therapy treatment focuses on helping people achieve independence in all areas of their lives and so see children who are experiencing difficulty with everyday tasks due to physical and developmental difficulties.


Our occupational therapists are highly experienced in assessing and treating babies, children and young people with a range of disabilities and difficulties at home and at school. They will work closely with you and your child to achieve their optimum independence with the skills needed for daily life.




Some of the underlying skills needed for daily independence that our occupational therapists can treat include, but are not limited to:


Fine motor skills

This describes the co-ordination of the muscles of the arm and small muscles of the hand to perform tasks such as writing, dressing and playing with small manipulative toys.

Sensory skills

These are how your child processes and organises sensory information (e.g. sight, sound, smell, taste, touch, etc.) and responds to this input (seen in their emotional reactions and behaviour).

Visual Perception

This describes how your child interprets and organises visual information.

Independence/Self-help skills

These are personal skills such as dressing and feeding.

We can advise on how to develop a child or young person's underlying skills, use practical techniques to learn tasks and recommend equipment/aids and adaptations to the environment where needed. We work with children in a variety of settings most appropriate to the child's needs, for example at home, school/nursery or at a clinic.

Our highly experienced speech language therapists offer assessment and treatment to babies, children and young people with a wide range of communication difficulties. This includes language delay or disorder, speech sound delay or disorder, cleft palate, dyspraxia and social communication disorders. They can also work with children who have feeding and swallowing difficulties.

Treatment plans may be offered as individual one on one session or as group sessions depending on the needs of your child. They can also advise home/nursery and schools.



Our speech language therapists are experienced at working with both verbal and non-verbal children and are able to advise you on communication aids.
