What are the Richmond Children’s Therapies Services?
We work as a team alongside other professionals with children, young people and their families to support communication, movement and functional skills.
Who do we help?
We help children and young people from 0-19 years, their families and other professionals relevant to the child/young person’s life, such as teachers.
We work together with key adults so that any advice we give can be integrated into daily life activities for maximum benefit.
What do we do?
The teams work closely together, delivering (where appropriate) a range of joint interventions, including joint assessment clinics and multi- therapy groups, as well as delivering services to families who only need one or two of the children’s therapy services. We now offer video as well as face-to-face consultations.
Your allocated therapist(s) will recommend what will best support your child/young person at the time.
Where do we work?
The Richmond Children’s Therapy teams work in schools, early years settings (e.g. nurseries, playgroups, children’s centres), clinics and sometimes in the family home.
The Occupational and Physiotherapy Service are based at Ham clinic.
The Speech and Language Therapy service main base is at Teddington Health and Social Care Centre, although SLT services are also delivered at Ham Clinic in Ham, Centre House Mortlake, and Whitton Corner, Whitton.
