Description of activity
The Children’s Integrated Therapies (CIT) service offers both integrated and single therapies dependent upon need and will provide specialist assessment, treatment and management for those children that meet the criteria for the service.
The CIT service will offer universal services in the form of groups in Childrens Centres and Schools, targeted services offering early intervention and blocks of therapeutic intervention and Specialist services requiring trans- disciplinary interventions and specialist services such as dysphagia.
The team works with children and parents/carers in schools, children’s centres, clinics and their homes to assess need and deliver therapy. Children and young people who have an Education and Health Care Plan (EHCP) will be treated according to the requirements of the plan.
The CIT team work with colleagues in education and social care to deliver an integrated service for children and young people and will share information only to support the care outcomes for the Child or Young Person.
The service will run groups in Childrens centres which offer a pre referral assessment for under 5 year olds, please contact your local Childrens Centre https://www.barnet.gov.uk/citizen-home/children-young-people-and-families/fyi-families-and-young-peoples-information-service.html
