Description of activity
The child development service is a multi-agency collaboration between local teams with expertise in child development (i.e. medical, nursing, therapy, education, social services).
Referrals are made to the Child development service by professionals or parents for any concern relating to a child's development. Each referral is discussed at a weekly multi-agency intake meeting; this meeting is attended by senior practitioners from Speech and Language Therapy, Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Pre-School Teaching Service, Specialist Advisory Teaching Service, Neurodevelopmental Paediatrics, Community Nursing and the 0 - 25 Social Work Team. They make a decision made based on the information included on the referral form.
Please see our webpage for more details and a referral form.
Please note that all referrals must relate to children resident in Barnet and must only be made with the agreement of the child's parents or carers.
