How to refer, who is involved and who to contact

Anybody with parental consent can make a direct referral to this service.  In order for the child to be seen in school, parents must have signed the referral form. The service encourages parents to complete a joint referral with school or nursery.  This is due to possible differences in presentation.

New referrals will be seen within 12 weeks.
