Children with Disabilities
Children with Disability services are made up of wide range of professionals which range from Social work, Nursing and a wide range of AHP professionals including Speech and Language, Occupational Therapy and Physiotherapy.
We work in partnership with children / young people and their families, and with a range of other professionals and agencies, to make a positive difference to the lives of disabled children and their families. We will complete an assessment of need for all appropriate referrals by talking to you and your child. This will help establish what support you and your family may require, and services may then be offered to help meet these needs.
