When making a referral, it is helpful to capture information from both home and school to help us best understand a young person’s needs. Sometimes we may request further information. This is to ensure that any assessment we provide is appropriate for the young person. Please use the form below to make a referral to us:
Please note, we currently have a waiting list for assessments due to the number of referrals we receive. There continues to be a longer wait than we had anticipated and unfortunately, we are currently unable to provide a precise timeframe for assessments. We are working as hard as we can to meet this increased demand.
There are a small number of cases that we are able to prioritise, please refer to our priority criteria for further details:
If you require support whilst waiting for an assessment, our telephone clinics are designed for parents/guardians to discuss any concerns and receive tailored advice from our team. If you would like to book into a telephone appointment, please contact our team (see ‘Contact Us’ page).
As a service, we aim to be accessible to all experiences, backgrounds and differences. If you feel there are alternative arrangements, we could make to support you to access our material, please contact the team by phone. Our team contact numbers can be found on ‘Contact Us’ page
