Interventions

  • Staged assessments and interventions based on a bio-psycho-social approach
  • Comprehensive assessment with the child and young person (depending on abilities) and their parents or carers to clarify diagnostic status, in particular neurodevelopmental and neuropsychiatric disorders.  Information is collated using internet-based and paper questionnaires, audio- and video- conferencing methods in addition to face-to-face assessment and information from a variety of sources is included, e.g. child, parent, schools, other agencies, etc.
  • Use of wearable technology for psychophysiological monitoring to assist in treatment decision-making, and biometric guided pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions for personalised care.
  • Pharmacological treatment (in liaison with other medical departments across the U.K. as required)
  • Advice and support to parents, carers, CAMHS, education colleagues on non-pharmacological treatments
  • Medication review
