Description of activity
The Physical Disabilities/Complex Medical Needs (PD/CMN) Team hosts a team of Specialist Teachers/Advisors who provide specialist educational advice and support for children and young people (0-25) with physical and complex medical needs. We offer advice, support, and training to early years settings, primary and secondary schools, post 16 education settings, CYP and their parents/carers as well as to other agencies.
We work closely with a range of other professionals:
• school staff
• occupational therapists
• speech and language therapists
• other health professionals
• educational psychologists
• other specialist teachers
• Children with Disabilities team
• LA Educations & Skills teams and other LA teams
• Voluntary sector
• Equipment providers
We operate an open referral policy however, referrers are encouraged to use the Barnet Specialist Team referral form and/or Barnet Child Development Service Referral form. Once a referral is received the case is discussed, the parents and setting are informed of the team’s decision and which member (s) of the team will provide the support.
