Integrated Therapy Service (ITS)
The Integrated Therapy Service (ITS) is a therapeutic service for children, young people, their families and/or carers who have behavioural, emotional and/or developmental difficulties due to trauma from abuse and neglect or who are at risk of harm. A full integrated team comprises of speech and language therapists, occupational therapists and psychologists.
What we do:
Our Integrated Therapy teams work together and use their combined skills to look at different aspects of the development and general functioning of each child and their family, including the role of their relationships and experiences.
We help children and young people to overcome their experiences and challenges through integrated therapy so they can reach their full potential.
Our team of specialists work together to conduct a full assessment, develop a personal treatment plan and provide ongoing therapeutic support.
We can help with:
- Providing a safe place for children to express and process difficult thoughts and feelings.
- Giving children the opportunity to explore the impact of their experiences.
- Supporting children and young people to develop skills for managing difficult feelings.
- Empowering parents/carers to help them deal with the child’s challenges.
What makes us different?
We don’t have a ‘one size fits all’ approach; every person we work with receives a tailored a support plan to help them reach their own goals.
We listen to everyone in your family and will talk with them in ways they understand.
Our unique multidisciplinary teams include family coaches, psychologists, occupational and speech therapists, and other specialists who provide expert help.
Speech Pathologists help with communication, language and speech skills. This includes how children and young people understand and use language, and the impact that any difficulties may have upon relationships, learning and emotional adjustment.
The aim of Occupational therapy is to enable children and young people to participate in the activities of everyday life that bring meaning and purpose to them. These include movement skills, play skills, and many of the skills needed for school readiness. Occupational therapists work with children, young people, their families and their communities to enhance their ability to engage in the activities that they want to, need to, or are expected to do, or by modifying the activities or the environment to allow for better engagement and participation.

Psychologists assess and support children and families with concerns about general development and learning, social and emotional skills, behavioural difficulties and relationships. Psychologists can work with children, young people, their families, and other important adults in their lives (e.g., schools), to manage and respond to traumatic experiences.
