How it works

If you are concerned about your baby or child’s development, you can refer to our assessment and advice service, where your child will be assessed by our team of professionals. You will be asked to complete a pre-assessment form in order to provide our specialists with further information about your child and concerns.  The Child and Family Therapy Service consider each referral and will decide which professionals are best to carry out an initial assessment.  Assessment will be with at least two professionals.


Our team comprises of specialist occupational therapists, physiotherapists, speech and language therapists, and conductive and early educationalists. This breadth of expertise means we can make a comprehensive assessment of your child’s needs.


If we do not think we are the best people to help your child and family, we will recommend a more appropriate service.

  • Movement skills
  • Communication
  • Attachment
  • Self-soothing
  • Sensory needs
  • Feeding
  • Play
