Little Tree Practice is a child and adolescent psychiatry practice that provides assessment and ongoing outpatient care. Your initial family assessment takes place during a two hour appointment. Your child or adolescent attends with parents or carers (two adults who live with the young person, if possible).
Children are seen initially with their parents in the room, and then separately if they feel comfortable. Parents are also given time separately to allow for all relevant perspectives to be given as part of the assessment.
Please bring along to your appointment any recent school reports, or reports from occupational therapists, speech therapists, psychologists or other specialists. Your referral from your GP (general practitioner) is essential for the assessment and we are able to receive these by email at firstname.lastname@example.org prior to your arrival.
When your assessment is completed (this may require another shorter appointment at a later date), you will be able to discuss options for followup with Dr Jennifer Harris. These may include ongoing therapy at Little Tree, or a plan for the involvement of other clinicians and allied health practitioners, or both.
