Team Around the Child approach
The Child Development and Therapy Centre uses the ‘Team Around the Child’ (TAC) approach. This involves Parents/Carers and other key professionals working as part of a team around an individual child or young person.
Some members of the TAC will be involved for longer periods whilst some will only be part of the team for a short time. Each child or young person will always have one member of the multi-agency team who acts as their lead worker to support the child and family in coordinating care.
Working Together as a Team Around the Child
The Child Development and Therapy Centre also provides outpatients appointments for patients of Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy and Speech and Language Therapy.
