The Bridge Centre offers a specialist service to children from birth up to the age of 5 years old, with:
- A recognised disability/diagnosis where significant development delay is likely to feature
- Complex health needs and neuro-developmental conditions
- A significant delay in 2 or more areas of development
We provide a child centred approach offering assessment, monitoring and intervention through multi-agency working, portage home visits, preschool developmental groups and training to professionals and families.
Assessments, interventions and support for each child is carried out following an individual pathway of care, this pathway is agreed and with parents. This is reviewed regularly with parents and professionals involved, depending on the child’s current needs.
Throughout the time working with a child we regularly gather and record the child’s voice, this is completed through completing activities with the child, observations of the child, and gathering information from parents and other professionals working with the child, we then use this information when planning future activities.
