For parents and caregivers seeking information about children's developmental health services for their child on the Gold Coast.

The three most important things to do are:
      1. Love your child for who they are
      2. Understand your child and all their strengths and weaknesses
      3. Discuss this with everyone in your child’s world so they modify their interactions accordingly
— Prof Doug Shelton 2022
