is it different to the assessment the HV does at their 2 year developmental check? we´ve been referred to have one of these and the appointment has come through today and I was just looking for info on what would happen?

Appointment letter definitely said for a Griffiths Mental Developmental Scales Test.

It didn't say so in the letter. It just says an appointment has been made for ds to see Dr M for this test. Surely if it was part of a pilot it would say so?

She said she was going to refer him for an eye test which incidentally we haven't heard about. He was 6 months behind at his development check but I didn't tell her I was concerned about this.

Nope not that worried really. I mentioned the eye thing to her cos he does seem to walk into things a lot and just thought if he needs glasses it's fairer on him to find out sooner than to let him walk around for years not being able to see properly.

Not really worried about the test. I looked at the link someone posted and I'm pretty certain it's just the same one the HV has already done with us.

I'm in the midlands so it's a bit far. We haven't had a HV for a few months cos ours left the surgery so we've been having random ones. A new one is starting soon so I will badger her about the eye thing.
