We are currently offering a range of services, which are being held via video call until face to face sessions are safe to resume.
We are aware that some families have struggled due to the stress and unusual demands placed on them. To be supportive during this difficult time, we are offering ONE FREE advice session over the phone, to support your child's mental and physical health and development.
Get in touch now on 07498 504854 or on email@example.com to arrange a free consultation to discuss your child's needs and how we can help.
A full list of our services and the concerns we work with can be found on our website. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Our team of Directors consists of a Consultant Paediatrician, a Speech and Language Therapist and a Clinical Psychologist. We also have a group of associate specialists who work with us in some circumstances. We can see families from across the UK. We are based in the North west of England within easy reach of Cumbria, Lancashire and West Yorkshire.
We have worked in the NHS for many years and began to realise that families in crisis felt they had been passed to separate services, stayed on separate waiting lists (sometimes for long periods of time), and had very little joined up thinking around their situation.
When a child, young person or family is in crisis, our aim is to offer support to develop a shared understanding about their situation, so as to develop ideas for a brighter future.
Health Horizons offer a holistic and integrated multi-disciplinary assessment to children and young people (aged 0-18 yrs), and their families, who might be dealing with a complex situation.
Within the context of their family and systemic relationships, we holistically assess the physical and mental health and development of a child or young person. This includes questions about attachment relationships, trauma, speech and language disorders and the possible diagnoses of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and/or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). We can also revisit previous diagnoses, to see if they still apply for a young person.
For a full list of the concerns Health Horizons may deal with please see the table below:
|Asperger's syndrome||Attachment difficulties||Challenging behaviour|
|Communication difficulties||Conduct Disorder||Developmental Problems|
|Emotional difficulties||Learning Difficulties||Low mood|
|Mental health difficulties||Obsessions||Oppositional defiant disorder (ODD)|
|Parenting||Pathological demand avoidance (PDA)||Physical health difficulties|
|Repetitive behaviours||School refusal||Selective mutism|
|Self esteem||Sleep||Social anxiety|
|Social and relationship difficulties||Special educational needs and disabilities (SEND)||Stereotypical behaviours|

This involves two clinicians and takes up to two hours. A meeting is held by the professionals involved to discuss the evidence gathered and to jointly consider an understanding of the situation.

Please note that by doing only the basic assessment, we will be unable to give a diagnosis of ADHD or ASD.

A joint clinical assessment takes place using clinical interviews, observations and standardised tests. Every assessment includes:
A multi-disciplinary meeting is held by the professionals involved to discuss the evidence gathered and to jointly consider an understanding of the situation. At this stage will we be able to decide whether a diagnosis or diagnoses is appropriate. The outcome is given to the family and any other professionals involved who can attend. A clinical report is also written to detail our findings. At this point we can give you advice and recommendations for the future, sign post you to free services if appropriate, and consider offering further interventions through our service to help achieve change.
