Children's Services

East Limerick Children’s Services is a partnership between the Daughters of Charity and the HSE and was established in 2005 to provide appropriate assessment / intervention to all children within the East Limerick Catchment area and between the ages Birth – 18 years.

The East Limerick Children’s Services (Child Development Team) was set up for the diagnosis, assessment and ongoing management of any child who may have a disability or developmental problems. Staff work within the principles of ‘early support’ offering a multi-disciplinary assessment of children, with actual or potential developmental difficulties, to determine the nature and extent of a child’s problems. The team then drafts a care plan. Depending on the findings of the assessment, ongoing treatment and management will be offered from within the Child Development Team or by referral to other agencies in response to your child’s needs.

It is crucial to our philosophy that the child’s whole environment is considered, including their gender, language and heritage. Parents/carers knowledge and skills about their child’s strengths and needs are acknowledged in determining the best support for the child and family.

The Child Development Team works as a multi-disciplinary team and is comprised of the following clinical specialism’s Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech and Language Therapy, Psychology, Social Work and Early Intervention Specialist.

Our professional therapists strive to provide services to children in the least restrictive environment thus enabling them to learn new skills and improve the quality of life for them and their families. With our holistic approach, focusing on the whole child, we are better able to provide personalized intervention.
