Neurodevelopmental Service - Daisy Chain Project

The neurodevelopment service provided by Daisy Chain is aimed at improving the experience and outcomes of those with needs associated with a neurodevelopmental disorder and remove barriers that restrict life choices by, improving professionals skill set and confidence to better understand and support children and young people, building upon families skills and confidence to understand and support their child and supporting young people to understand their differences and increase their coping strategies. 

Assessment team members will sometimes include pediatricians, psychologists, occupational therapists and speech and language therapists. The assessment team is a full multidisciplinary team, referred to as a MAAT. At a MAAT the professionals discuss all of the assessments which have been carried out with your child to make a clinical decision as to whether your child has Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). 

Everyone's length of time from first assessment to being discussed at a MAAT can vary depending on the number and types of assessments your child requires. This is because not all children have the same assessments. The assessments carried out are based on the presenting needs of your child. 

In Hartlepool this service is provided by Daisy Chain.
