Child Development Centre (Brighton & Hove)

What is Seaside View Child Development Centre

The Seaside View Child Development Centre is where children in Brighton and Hove with concerns about their development are assessed and where health professionals such as paediatricians, nurses and therapists work together to support and treat your child.

We see children with many different conditions, for example, children with a delay in development, possible autism, cerebral palsy, genetic disorders and other syndromes that affect development.

We offer:

  • Assessment, which may include investigation, diagnosis and treatment and early intervention based on a child and family’s individual needs
  • A flexible and responsive service committed to working in partnership with parents/carers and children and young people
  • High quality information and support to plan together with families to meet their needs

This is where many children are diagnosed and where health professionals such as paediatricians and therapists work together to support and treat your child.
