Your child may work with one of these services if a referral to that service is made. This may come through your GP, paediatrician or through our school. We would seek advice from a specialist service if we feel that they could have a positive impact on your child’s progress through sharing their expertise in an area of need. This would be discussed with you and your permission sought before any referral is made.
