Telethon Kids Institute Research Project Online Survey – Telethon Kids are inviting individuals with a neurodevelopmental condition, parents/carers of individuals with a neurodevelopmental condition and professionals with experience in neurodevelopmental conditions to participate in an online survey regarding the assessment and support processes of neurodevelopmental conditions. They hope the findings from this project will inform a shared framework that will streamline the process of identification, assessment of functioning and diagnosis of neurodevelopmental conditions, and improve access to support for those living with neurodevelopmental conditions.
