First Steps ASD Paediatrics Multi Disciplinary Team Drop Ins – All are welcome to join the Teams meetings.
This is part of the First Steps Project supporting practitioners and families with Children on Neurodiverse pathways. These Drop-In sessions are for Professionals.
There will be 10 minutes with one of the therapists sharing some useful ideas, a Ten Minute Toolkit, this is a great opportunity and then there will be time for discussion.
From Lisa Teoh, Paediatrician:
The First Steps collaboration is a pilot project started in Torbay and Devon gathering momentum in the last six months, looking at how to provide a joined-up child-centred approach to neurodiversity. This April we aim to gather round the table everyone working with families to commit to joined-up care. Through changing our language and the way we work together, we can shift the question from “what is wrong” to “what can we do”- aiming for rapid recognition and response to every child’s needs.
- First Steps handbook
A framework for families, along with conversation with someone who knows their child.
- Monthly skill sharing drop-ins with schools, early help, therapists and paediatricians
Professionals supporting a family can directly confer about further ways to support each individual child, saving the need for referrals.
- Children who require further assessment are referred into a single pathway and are seen in one appointment along with whoever has referred/ is supporting the family.
Joint appointments between health, therapies and schools/early help.
