Disabled Access We offer advice for practitioners who work with all children and young people (eg teachers, early years practitioners, health visitors, nursing teams, children's centre staff). We work together to ensure: • there is good, up to date information available for parents about how to support their child's health and / or development. • There is advice and support for parents if they have a concern that children and young people can access our services as quickly and easily as possible if they need to. Some children and young people will require additional help but for a short period of time to address a particular issue. We work closely with schools and nurseries. We provide training and 'toolkits' for schools so that they can act quickly if they think a child needs some help to boost their skills in a key area, for example listening skills, attention span, speech sounds. We will see children and young people to offer advice for 'one off's' or a short block of regular sessions to help them make progress towards a specific goal or tackle a specific concern, eg food intolerance Some children and young people with a high level of need or ongoing needs will receive longer term support from us. This may take the form of one or more of the following: an individualised programme for home/school or nursery; sessions in the clinic, at home or at school; involvement in multi-agency planning meetings. Please see our website for more information about the specific support offered by occupational therapists, physiotherapists and speech and language therapists
