Healthy Baby / Wellness Exam


The Rourke Baby Assessment &

Nipissing District Development Screen


Parents often have questions about their child's health, growth and development. I use the Rourke Baby Record (RBR) and the Nipissing District Development Screen (NDDS) to guide my clinical assessment and examination of your child. Vaccinations are also included as part of the assessment.


The RBR and NDDS are evidence-based tools for health practitioners of children in the first six years of life. It contains comprehensive well baby / child care guides including:


  • growth and nutrition monitoring,

  • developmental surveillance,

  • physical examination parameters,

  • immunizations, and

  • anticipatory guidance on safety, family, behaviour and health promotion issues.


Both comprehensive tools are endorsed by the College of Family Physicians of Canada and the Canadian Pediatric Society.
