How do I get my child assessed?
- See your doctor to get a referral to a pediatrician for a thorough medical exam.
- If Fetal Alcohol Syndrome Disorder (FASD) or a related condition is suspected, then the pediatrician will make a referral to Sunny Hill Health Centre, for a diagnostic assessment.
- Once you have been referred for an assessment, you can request our Key Worker services at any time.
