Guidance on partnership working between allied health professions and education



1 'young people' refers to children aged three to eighteen, or younger if they have additional support needs and are referred to a local education authority by an NHS Board. The term children is also used but applies to the same age range.
2 Wherever it is used, 'parents' refers to parents, foster carers, carers who are relatives or friends and care staff in a residential setting (including secure provision).
3 For a full list of allied health professionals and a description of what they do, see appendix 1.
