Our Crewe Learning Disability Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) is a community based, specialist service offering support to children, young people and families/carers in Central Cheshire.

Parent programmes

We currently offer the ‘Signposts for Building Better Behaviour’ programme ages 3-16.

Behaviour Assessments

We provide functional assessments which may involve interviewing parents/carers, observing the young person directly at home or at school, and asking parents and/or teachers to complete recording forms.

Behaviour strategies and interventions

The team utilizes a Positive Behaviour Support Model when working with young people and their families. We can create individualised plans written with the young person and their family.

Individual skills work

Using a person centered framework.

Sleep assessments and interventions

These are individualised to the young person/family.

Health facilitation

Support accessing reasonable adjustments and annual health checks.

This CAMHS service is available to anyone aged 0-18 at the time of referral.

Young people between 0-18 years of age with a diagnosis of a Severe Learning Disability and behaviours which are challenging can be referred to us by a professional (such as a GP or teacher).
