We do not usually provide a service to children with Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Emotional Behavioural Difficulties, ADHD, Autism, Physical Sensory or Communication difficulties where the child may be of average or above average intelligence.
We have a maximum 18 weeks waiting list across the service. We have a target to allocate referrals within 12 weeks. Following a referral the service will triage the case and ask parents to opt in by completing a 'Getting to know you' form. Following receipt of this form, the referral will be placed on the list for allocation to an appropriate professional or specialist nurse.
