Service Description

The Children and Young People Learning Disability Team provide a specialist service for children and young people with learning disabilities in tier 3, following the framework recommended in Count Us In and Every Child Matters.

We provide assessment, consultation, intervention, training and liaison, which may involve professionals from more than one discipline. Interventions are based on assessment formulation and care planning. It is collaborative, goal orientated, and where possible time limited. Interventions are evidence based. Consultation and training is aimed at enhancing the confidence and competence necessary to deliver an intervention provided by others, involved in the care of young people. “Knowledge” will vary between disciplines and individuals. Feedback to professionals and families is respectful, open and clear and correspondence is copied to families unless there is good documented reason not to.
