Caring for your Child

Your Child's Hospital Journey

AHP Children's Therapy Team

Children and young people’s development is individual and unique. Although for many their development follows a typical pattern, others may have specific problems with their development and may benefit from specialist assessment and advice.

The AHP Children’s Therapy Team for Children and Young People includes:

We provide a local, community service for children and young people aged 0 - 18 years who have physical, occupational and speech and language difficulties in York, Scarborough and its surrounding areas. Therapists work with children, young people and their families/carers to maximise their health, function and independence.

How the Children's Therapies Service Works

How are Children referred to the Service?

Children can be referred to Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech and Language or Dietetics by your GP, Consultant Paediatrician or other medical professionals.

Parents of children with speech, language and communication needs can also self refer.

For guidance on how to make a referral to the service please click here.
