The referral process

If your child is seen by a Health Visitor please discuss your concerns with them first and if their needs cannot be met through their intervention they can make a referral.

If your child is in School, Pre-school or Nursery, please discuss your concerns with the SENCO who may then make a referral if their needs cannot be met through the Pre-school/nursery/school provision.

Referrals can also be made by other health professionals including your GP.

Referral Criteria:

The child must have 3 or more areas of concern. These must be functional and impact on their ability to participate in activities of daily living.
