All children and young people in placement have available to them a team of therapists depending on the young people’s assessed needs. The team of therapists include a clinical psychologist, an occupational health therapist and a speech and language therapist. Upon admission into the home, every child receives an initial psychological screening within the first month of placement to ensure that the care package, including therapeutic support, offered is as bespoke as possible.
