Developmental Paediatricians

The Developmental Paediatric Service is a family-centred service dedicated to helping children and young people to manage health problems that may be affecting their developmental progress.

Our Surrey-wide service is led by consultants and assesses children and young people experiencing a wide range of developmental difficulties related to:

  • Developmental delay or disorder
  • Neurological disability
  • Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) - under 6 years old
  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) - under 6 years old
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Severe learning difficulties (SLD) and/or complex needs

Assessments focus on physical, sensory, social and emotional development and any recommended interventions are discussed and agreed with the family.

The Developmental Paediatric Service works closely with other professionals, such as therapists, nurses, teachers and social workers to ensure a cohesive and joined-up approach is in place for the child/young person.

Who can refer?

Children and young people can be referred to the Developmental Paediatric Service by their health visitor, GP, therapist, early years service, paediatricians based in the local acute or specialist hospital, paediatric audiology, Mindworks Surrey or other agencies.
