IAC launches new Medical and Development Assessment Form
Following research undertaken in 2015/2016 by Dr Mary Mather and Dr Natalia Bell, Medical Advisors to IAC, on the quality of adoption medical reports submitted to IAC by agencies overseas, a new and comprehensive Medical and Developmental Assessment form for use by families adopting children from overseas has now been developed.
The new form is available without charge to all prospective adopters working with IAC from the assessment and post approval teams, and to Local Authority who subscribe to IAC through the Subscriber Gateway. The form comes in two formats – a PDF which can be printed and filled in by hand, and a downloadable form which can be completed on screen.
Local Authorities who do not subscribe to IAC services may purchase the form at a cost of £50.
