Helping Hands Psychology Service for Children with Additional Needs
The Helping Hands Psychology Service for Children with Additional Needs is part of the wider Child and Family Psychology and Therapies department at Aneurin Bevan University Health Board.
The service provides emotional wellbeing support to families of children with additional needs, as well as post-diagnostic support, support groups, workshops, and consultations.
The service can support in considering behaviours that challenge and work alongside other professionals to support a family.
The service covers the whole of Gwent and has bases at all 3 children’s centres; Serennu (SCC), Nevill Hall (NHCC) and Caerphilly (CCC). The team is made up of psychologists who work closely with professionals from other disciplines within a young person’s system (e.g occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, nurses).
