- Referral process
- The referral process is based on clinical assessment using Goodman's Strengths and Difficulties Tool (SDQ) and face to face meetings/phone calls. Parents/ carers ,with PR, can refer directly for private play therapy work. Referrals can also be made by educational establishments including pre-school, schools, specialist school provision and further / higher education. Referrals are welcomed by providers of post adoption support, fostering, social care and insurance based services. All referral are progressed based on the outcomes of the clinical assessment.I would advised contacting me, in the first instance, to get advice on next steps.
