ORIGINS participant Nina Dorieux knows the benefits of real-time feedback, incorporated into The ORIGINS Project.
Nina and Noah Dorieux
When son Noah, who was 7 months old at the time, was identified with speech and developmental delays through the ORIGINS assessments, ORIGINS paediatrician, Dr Jamie Tan quickly responded and let her know that a follow up was needed.
“There were some things that we had noticed with Noah’s development, but sometimes as a Mum, you don’t want to appear paranoid, so you let them go,” Nina said. “When the ORIGINS team got in touch to let me know that it would be a good idea to see a physio, I was grateful that my concerns were validated.”
Noah is now two-years old and has been seeing a physio and getting help with his speech and hearing.
“I definitely don’t think we would have had the same access to specialists and resources to support us with Noah if we weren’t part of the ORIGINS cohort,” Nina said.
“His delays were identified earlier than they would have been otherwise, say at the standard one-year paediatric check-up, and I have no doubt he is developing better because of that earlier intervention.”
