This section looks at how Children’s Disability Network Teams (CDNTs) work with families who are receiving their services.
Who works on a CDNT?
All CDNTs include health and social care professionals (HSCPs) who specialise in different areas of child development. CDNTs typically include the following team members:
- Occupational therapists
- Social workers
- Speech and language therapists.
Teams may also have access to:
- Behaviour Support Specialists
- Clinical Nurse Specialists (CNS)
- Early Educators
- Therapy Assistants.
The team members share their knowledge, information and skills with you and your family so you can support your child’s development. Team members can meet children and families in their home, in school or in our CDNT building.
Who your child sees and how often they see them will depend on your child's needs. The team will discuss this with you. Their aim is to support your child to thrive, grow, and learn. They will also help your family to learn how to best support your child.
