Integrated review at two

The integrated review at two brings together the development review used by Health Visiting Teams, and statutory Early Years Foundation Stage Progress Check used by early years practitioners to assess children's development at 24 to 36 months. The integrated review supports the early identification and effective intervention of children's developmental needs with parents fully engaged and informed.

When a child is between two and three years of age, their parents are invited to attend a health review which is conducted by a health professional, usually a child's health visitor or a community nursery nurse and provides an opportunity to discuss all areas of a child's development and any concerns the parents may have. It provides professionals with the opportunity to provide early intervention to support a child's individual needs.

If a child attends an early years setting, an Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Progress Check will be completed between two to three years of age. The results of the education progress check should be kept in the child's personal child health record 'red book' and will be reviewed by the health professional during the child's health development review.
