How to refer, who is involved and who to contact
Schools cannot refer directly. The referral must come from a medical professional such as:
- Ryegate consultant
- speech and language therapy
- Educational Psychologists and Early Years Inclusion Teachers can also refer.
Parents can go to the GP to ask for a referral. All referrals now require school and parent questionnaires to be completed before a referral will be accepted. This information is required to make sure the correct triage of children on the different pathways. Parents can take copies of these to the GP with a covering letter from school. The GP can add this to their referral letter.
Consent should have been provided by the family that their child will be assessed for Autism as part of this pathway. Please note that triage based on referral information will place a child on the most appropriate pathway, not age.
