Expectations of Change

Expectations of Change

With any longstanding habitual behaviour, change can take time and will require out of session practice.

The aim of our service is to provide skills and knowledge to patients and their families so they can continue to make change after treatment discharge.

In the future your child can be re-referred by any healthcare professional once advice and strategies have been put in place and further support is required.
