'Beyond Milestones' is a free online resource introducing core skills in the assessment of child development.  It uses video demonstrations of real-life, short developmental assessments plus expert commentary and (optional) self-assessment modules.  It was developed over a five-year period by clinicians at Sydney Children's Hospitals Network and the University of New South Wales, Australia.

'Beyond Milestones' works. 

The authors conducted a randomised controlled trial testing the usefulness of 'Beyond Milestones' using Australian paediatric trainee doctors.  The study found that using 'Beyond Milestones' improved knowledge, increased confidence and was useful, providing a structured approach to developmental assessment.

'Beyond Milestones' is for anyone who sees children in a clinical context.
