Physical Health Team
We are a county wide team of Children’s Speech & Language Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Child Development Specialists and Physiotherapists.
We provide assessment, treatment and advice for children and young people from 0-19 years. We help children to cope with or overcome a variety of problems such as behavioural difficulties, developmental delay, complex physical disabilities, difficulties with talking, eating and drinking or problems with everyday activities.
Following initial assessment we will provide advice and guidance and agree specific treatment goals with you and your child.
We always encourage the parent/carers and child and, where appropriate, education professionals, to take an active role in the therapy. This leads to the most positive outcomes.
Where a child needs to access more than one of our services we work as a team, with the child and family at the centre, to agree and achieve specific targeted goals until such a time that specialist services are no longer required.
