Therapy teams work with children and young people in the most appropriate setting to promote functional skills. We routinely visit early years settings, mainstream schools and specialist educational settings, children may also be seen at home or in clinic according to clinical need.
Multidisciplinary therapy teams are co-located in locality areas to facilitate the co-ordination of care for children, young people and their families. We have four teams across the county:
- North Hertfordshire and Stevenage
- East Hertfordshire
- St Albans and Dacorum
- Watford and Three Rivers
In addition to these teams we have specialist occupational therapy teams who work across the county to support with home adaptations and deliver specialist moving and handling training. We have specialist speech and language therapy teams who support dysphagia (feeding and swallowing) and multidisciplinary autism assessment pathways across Hertfordshire.
