During our initial discussion we will discuss your needs and choose the appropriate social, emotional and mental health assessments. Assessing social, emotional and mental health can be complex and involve a variety of assessments in order to gain a comprehensive understanding of the situation.
Following SEMH assessments we will review the findings and discuss possible future steps with you. We would be happy to discuss findings with any professional currently working with the child or young person to facilitate a joined up approach. There is an option to purchase a report outlining the results, recommendations and interpretation. An intervention could be suggested as a next step, and in this case we can work together to achieve the best outcome for the child or young person.
SEMH assessments can identify hidden needs. Our assessments are carried out by clinical, educational and child psychologists who interpret the assessment results and begin to consider recommendations for the child or young person’s future provision.
