Referrals and first appointments
We have an open referral system and take referrals from
parents for pre-school children. For school age children we recommend parents
ask school to refer so we can obtain more detailed information about how their
difficulty is impacting in school and which other practitioners/services are
Children can be referred by:
Our service operates in specialist teams and
it is helpful if detailed information is made available at the initial stage of
the referral to ensure that children can be seen quickly and by the most
appropriate part of the service.
Initial appointments may be:
- Contact by telephone (you will be informed the time and date)
- In an assessment clinic
- An appointment in school (mainstream schools and specialist provision)
The type of appointment will depend on which team you are being seen.
