About the Neurodevelopment Assessment Pathway Service

We are a team of health care professionals, including doctors, nurses and therapy staff who work together to support families who have a child with a suspected neurodevelopmental condition or disability.

We work together to assess and support children and young people with a wide range of needs such as:

  • Delay in development- skills taking longer than usual to develop
  • Physical, vision and hearing impairment
  • Learning difficulties or likelihood of additional needs in school
  • Social interaction and communication issues- Autism spectrum disorder.
  • Attention and hyperactivity difficulties (over 6 years old)
  • Sensory differences- sensitivity to smell taste sights sounds touch and movement
  • Difficulties with coordinating movements
  • Difficulties completing everyday activities such as dressing and using the toilet.
