How are children referred to our service?
Some children are referred at a very young age, especially by their hospital Consultant or Health Visitor.
Any child aged 0 to 5 can be referred to us by their preschool or school, or a health professional such as a Speech and Language Therapist. These referrals often come to us through the Early Intervention HUB after a Common Assessment Framework (CAF) has been completed for the child.
We receive referrals at any age from birth to 5 years old. Referrals are received from:
- health professionals, eg pediatrician, health visitor, speech and language therapist
- the Early Intervention Hub following a professional undertaking a common assessment (CAF)
- preschools, nurseries and schools
