A child of 6 years was referred for difficulties across a variety of developmental areas. William (not his real name) did not have any formal diagnosis but had some difficulties with writing and reading. The initial referral and consultation highlighted the fact that Willliam was very small for his age, summer born and immature across most developmental areas in comparison to his peers. Initially, the referral focused on the output William produced, reading words and writing sentences. However, as the consultation progressed, there also appeared to be some other difficulties with social and physical development.
