Some frequently asked questions
Where do assessments take place?
Assessments can be completed in any setting suitable to the area(s) being assessed. This may be at home, nursery, school, community or our clinic.
Where are sessions held?
This will depend on the individual and type of intervention / treatment they are receiving. We are happy to work with the individual’s needs and support them wherever necessary.
Do you only work in Cardiff?
No, we offer our services all over the United Kingdom.
What ages do you see?
We specialise in working with babies, children, adolescents, and young adults (aged 0 to 25 years).
My child does not have a diagnosis. Does this matter?
No, we can see any individual or child with or without a diagnosis.
How many treatment sessions do you suggest?
This will differ according to the individual’s needs and the type of intervention they are requiring. For instance, you may require home consultancy on a programme you already have in situ, this way we will teach you how to implement strategies and activities and the data needed to be collected.
My child can be aggressive. Will you be able to manage the behaviours?
We are trained in a variety of approaches including de-escalation, conflict resolution, positive handling, and breakaway. We will work with any behavioural management plans that are in situ.
When can we access your services?
We try to work as flexibly as we can, offering daytime, evening, weekend, and bank holiday appointments.
How do I get feedback as to how the sessions are going?
We provide written treatment reports following each block of intervention or consult. We are happy to also communicate by phone or email as to how your child(ren) is/are progressing.
