HOW WE HELP

Often parents tell us they have a ‘nagging feeling’ about their child but don’t know if it warrants a specialist consultation. Many are told to ‘wait and see’ by well-meaning people. Sometimes a teacher or family member has flagged a concern and the parents don’t know where to start. Sometimes a child has seen some professionals in the past, but the child is still struggling, and the parents don’t know the next steps to take. Children don’t come with an instruction manual and it can be hard to know where to start.

We understand those ‘nagging feelings’ (we have had them ourselves). We were lucky enough to know when and where to turn to for evidence based advise, so we could help our children.

We have met with the professionals and clinics on our database and know them ‘beyond their websites’. Everyone on our database has been forthcoming with their areas of strength and their extra training, so we can create personalised shortlists for your child and family’s needs.

Our database has speech and language therapists, occupational therapists, educational psychologist, clinical psychologists, counsellors, art therapists, dieticians, developmental paediatricians, physiotherapists, and audiologists and others. If we don’t have the right person on our database, we use our contacts to find them for you.

The Guided Child is your starting point to find the right professional to address an issue or put your mind at ease.
