What we do

The service offers information, advice and guidance, as well as some limited interventions for children and young people following a diagnosis. The primary function of the service is to offer children and young people from preschool age to 18 years a neurodevelopmental assessment and a profile of need (some children may only be able to be fully assessed from the age of 5). Please ask your local service for information about our early years and pre-school teams, who provide assessment for children under 5.

It is really important to say that an assessment does not always mean your child will receive a diagnosis and a diagnosis should not be the only route to accessing support. If your child has needs both the school and local authority may have a duty to meet those needs without the presence of a diagnosis.
