Carolyn will support you and your child in regular school clinics with sessions from the following professionals where appropriate:

  • Community Paediatrician
  • CAMHS
  • Dietician
  • Orthoptists 

Everything you talk to us about is confidential unless you tell us that a child or an adult is suffering or likely to suffer significant harm.

If we need to discuss anything with someone else, this will only be done after we have explained the reasons for doing it. It often helps if your child’s teacher knows about health problems so we will encourage parents / carers to share health information with school.

After all a child needs to be healthy and happy to enable them to learn and achieve.
