2 Year Review

When your child is between 2 and 2.5 years old they will be offered a health and development review. 

As part of your child's 2 year review, You will be sent an email and asked to complete an online questionnaire. The questionnaire looks at children’s communication skills, their balance, how well they use their arms, legs, hands and fingers, problem-solving skills, and their personal and social development. The questionnaire does not take long to complete, but you may like to spread it out over a few days and take time to enjoy playing with your child.  

Remember this is not a test! It is there to make sure that you as parents or caregivers can give your child the right about of support to assist their development. 

We might contact you and arrange to see you and your child by video call in your home or community setting depending on individual circumstances. 


  • An Ages and Stages questionnaire is a tool used by our staff to see how your child is doing in 5 areas of development. These are:

    Communication - How they talk to you and let you know what they want.

    Gross motor skills - How they crawl or walk.

    Fine motor skills - How they use their fingers and hands to hold or move things.

    Problem Solving - How they work things out.

    Personal Social - How they play and understand you.

    There will also be some questions about other parts of your child's development, including hearing, vision, speaking and behaviour. 

    When answering each question, you just need to click the box beside the question to say if they can do the activity or skill;

    • All the time.
    • Some of the time.
    • Not yet doing this.

    All children are different so don't worry if they have not started doing everything in the questionnaire - that's normal.

    Once you have submitted the questionnaire, the Healthy Child Programme team will look at it. If there are;

    • Things you are worried about.
    • Your child is not doing lots of things yet.

    One of our specially trained team will call  you so you can talk about this. We can make an appointment to see you and your child if we need to.

    If you are happy and everything is going well for you and your child we will be back in touch before they start school.

  • If there are areas identified where your child needs extra help, the review provides the opportunity for the right support to be put in place. You may be contacted by a health professional to discuss any extra support for your child. 

  • If your child has additional needs and this is known by us, we will contact you to check if the questionnaire is appropriate for your child. If its not, we will offer an alternative way to review your child’s development. If you think that we may not know this information about your child please contact us on 0300 300 0123.
