We can also help with:

- medical advice for Education Health Care Plans
- safeguarding children
Using a combination of telephone, virtual and face to face appointments, we will work with you, your child and other professionals involved (i.e. School). For face to face appointments, the first appointment usually takes 1 hour. We may physically examine your child, watch them play and ask you some questions about their history. We might also do something called a developmental assessment. This will give us an idea about your child’s strengths and difficulties.
Please let us know if you would like to speak to the paediatrician privately rather than with your child present, and we will do our best to support this request.
Together with you, we’ll make a plan about how best to help your child. This might involve them being referred to other services for more assessments or extra support, such as:
We might also arrange for you to have a review appointment with us, so we can to see how you’re both getting on.
