What specialist services and expertise are available or accessed by the setting?

We have close working relationships with the local speech therapy team in Horsforth who visit the setting to carry out assessments in addition to visiting the child at home. We also have experience working with Leeds City Council SEN Consultants who assess children’s needs and often play a role in supporting a child, parent or setting so that the best quality of care is provided. In these situations, the Consultants regularly visit the setting to identify children’s progress and identify any other additional needs.

We have experience of a number of other local contacts including Macmillan nurses, physiotherapists, local outreach workers, social workers and occupational therapy. We also work closely with Horsforth Children’s Centre.
