Who we are

Screening clinic is delivered by Speech and Language therapists, Occupational Therapists and Physiotherapists every Thursday morning in the Gym at Snapdragons Centre in Strood. 

What we do

The purpose of this clinic is to screen your child to further understand their development.

There maybe three different outcomes to this appointment:

  1. Your child is discharged as it is felt that they are demonstrating age appropriate skills
  2.  Your child will be signposted to other agencies for support with their development. You may be given ideas for you to carry out with your child to aid their development and discharged from this clinic
  3. Your child will be referred into one of our pathways for further assessment.

 

Your child may have been referred to see one, two or all three professionals. We will do our best to offer you all appointments on one morning however this may not always be possible.  You will be allocated a 10-15 min slot with a member of staff to talk through your concerns. Please arrive 15mins before your allocated appointment to complete the paperwork given at reception as this helps to inform the clinician of your child’s needs.

Please be aware that you will be in a clinic where there are other parents/carers with their children talking to clinicians and we ask that you respect their privacy.
