Useful Information

The referral pack consists of four documents:

* Referral form for schools to request support from the Outreach Service, if they meet our criteria

* Parent Leaflet is for the school to give to a parent to inform them of involvement from the Outreach Service with their child

* Parent Protocol Leaflet is a document that can be adapted by the school to support an initial conversation with parents of a child with additional needs. It should guide a conversation so that the parents and the school can come to a shared understanding of what a school can offer and how expectations can be met to best meet the needs of the child.
