You or your child might be ‘referred’ by a health/social care or educational professional (e.g. case manager, GP, nurse specialist, occupational therapist or medical consultant), after experiencing a neurological event or illness. Following referral, a first appointment is usually offered to undertake an assessment to determine if further more detailed assessment, specific advice, support, treatment or follow-up is appropriate. You can also ‘self refer’ by contacting us and requesting an appointment although it is often very helpful to be referred by a professional who is also familiar with your medical history and current situation.
Neuropsychologists provide specialist assessment, rehabilitation and psychological therapy to assist with problems and changes affecting the child and their family.
These problems could relate to problems with social development, progress with school/college, behavioural changes and adjustment.
