We were sent a questionnaire to ask how our child is developing (3 to 4 year old) with a covering letter to say that the development is now not routinely monitored - what is the point? If my child wasn't developing correctly then I could easily lie to cover the fact, and as it isn't monitored anymore why keep records? This seems like a complete waste of time as the questions asked are limited, ie "can most people understand what your child says? " Would it not be better to send a leaflet out stating where your child's development is meant to be and if you have any concerns then contact the Health Visitor. I feel neither approach is the best as child who may need help could be stopped by their Parent/Guardian hiding behind incorrect answers.
It's not routinely monitored so let's save money and not bother. Or let's do it properly with correct intervention.
