Fact Files

Early Years Fact File and School Age Fact File

These Fact Files were first published in 2012 and both parents and professionals have found the information, advice and support invaluable in helping them to meet the needs of Children and Young People in development of their physical, occupational and communication skills.
They include information on the following areas:

  • Developmental milestones
  • Common and acceptable variations in typical development
  • Problems you may see and what to do
  • Advice sheets
  • Service information

These well-received documents are now being revised and updated in consultation with both parents and professionals. Please bear in mind that some of the information in them including our service name and contact details is now out of date so please consult other pages on our website for the up to date information. Once the new files are ready these will be replaced by the updated documents.

If you have any feedback about these we would welcome your comments and suggestions. Please email
