Department of Psychology, Health and Professional Development


  • Staff in the IRCD have produced a range of resources to support those working with children and families. These include useful websites, leaflets and assessment tools. Some provide information about the typical development of children across different domains of development while others explain the characteristics of children with particular developmental disorders (e.g. Developmental Coordination Disorder, or DCD). We have produced a range of assessment tools designed for health and education professionals. These include unrestricted, freely available checklists for teachers as well as more formal tools available for purchase through our partner publishers.
