Your child’s 10-12 month development review

You will be contacted by your health visiting team when your child is between 10 and 12 months old.

The information received and discussed at this contact includes:

  • Development- how your child is moving around, their speech and language development, problem solving and how they play and interact
  • Safety- safety in the home in relation to your child’s stage of development and safer sleeping practices
  • Feeding and oral health- your child’s diet, stopping bottle use and vitamin supplementation
  • Behaviour- the positive management of challenging toddler behaviour and the importance of routines
  • Health- any health conditions, hearing or vision concerns and the importance of immunisations to child health
  • Emotional health and wellbeing- your support networks and how you are coping

This could include completing a questionnaire known as the Ages and Stages questionnaire (ASQ).

Health Visitors can offer further support if needs are identified. You can find out more about the additional support available here.

You can find more advice and information in the ‘Your child at one’ collection.
