ASK Clinics

What is ASK?

ASK (formerly known as DEIPP Assessment Clinics)

ASK is designed for families with children born in 2015 or later who live in the Halton Community. The purpose of ASK is to provide a quick 15 minute consultation for parents who have questions about their child’s development. If it is evident to a parent or professional that there are existing developmental concerns ASK is not appropriate. Instead, a referral for a full assessment should be made directly to the appropriate services. For example: speech, hearing and developmental organizations.

ASK offers consultations with professionals from community agencies in the following areas:

  • Hearing
    An Audiologist will provide a brief check of your child’s hearing. For infant hearing call ErinoakKids
  • Behaviour
    A Consultant will briefly discuss your questions and concerns regarding parenting and your child’s behavior.
  • Development
    A Consultant can talk to you about any concerns you might have and can answer questions about your child’s overall development.

A Public Health Nurse will also be available at clinics to provide information on nutrition, safety, immunization, parenting, etc.
