What is the neurodevelopmental pathway?
Our neurodevelopmental pathway team work with children and young people with complex neurodevelopmental difficulties, who require a multi-agency assessment to gain a better understanding of their needs. The assessments are carried out by professionals from St Helens Local Authority eg. Educational Psychologists, Language and Social Communication Team Teachers, Bridgewater Community Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust eg. Community Paediatricians, Speech and Language Therapists and North West Boroughs Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust eg. Consultant Psychiatrist, Occupational Therapists and others. These results of these coordinated assessments are considered by a multi-agency panel. This may result in a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), General Developmental Delay (GDD) or difficulties with Attachment.
