Who are we?

Depending on a child’s needs, they may see one or more of the following members of our team:

Paediatrician: A paediatrician is a children’s doctor. The paediatrician will undertake a medical assessment and offer advice about further tests, if needed.

Clinical psychologist: Psychologists consider the way a child thinks, learns and reacts to situations. This helps to identify the best way to support an individual child’s wellbeing, development and learning

Occupational psychologists: Occupational therapists assess a child’s fine motor skills (how they use their hands), posture and positioning. They consider how a child goes about doing everyday tasks and how they could be helped to do these more easily or with greater independence.

Physiotherapists: Physiotherapists analyse how a child moves. They look at muscle tone, co-ordination and balance. If needed, they may develop a programme of activities to help a child develop their physical skills.

Speech and language therapists: Speech and language therapists assess a child’s ability to understand and communicate. This can include how children behave socially and how well they interact with others. They also consider concentration and play skills.

If a child has problems with eating or drinking for physical reasons, they can also assess this and offer advice.

Early years intervention teachers: Our teachers are a vital link with schools and early years settings in Rotherham. Children’s developmental difficulties can affect their education and our teachers can offer information and advice to educational staff so they know how best to support children.

Specialist health visitor: our specialist health visitor offers health screening as well as help and support with particular areas of concern e.g. sleep

Nursery nurses: Our nursery nurses assess and support children’s play and development, and provide structure to develop their skills and communication

Health care assistants: Our health care assistants are there to support children and families when they visit and to help the clinical staff
