What we do

We offer assessment to children and young people who have:

  • an identified emotional, mental health or behavioural difficulty
  • a diagnosed learning disability or significant impairment of intellectual and social adaptive functioning
  • had an assessment which indicates that other services involved with the child are not able to meet the current need if there are not the skills or competence available

Illustration of a young person.Children with learning disabilities often present mental health differently from other children. So we also look at:

  • Challenging behaviours of sufficient severity to destabilise placements, including physical and verbal aggression and self-injurious behaviours
  • Severe disturbance in eating, self-care, toileting, relationships
  • Capacity of families and schools to contain and manage these behaviours
