How we can help you...

How we can help In our experience, taking time to fully understand a young person and their family helps us to achieve the best outcomes. And so each MSA journey starts with a detailed assessment of the needs a young person may have.

Once a young person has been referred to us, we will consider the most comfortable setting to meet them and their family. Initial appointments can occur at home, in schools, or at our centre in the New Forest. We often start the assessment process with an informal discussion with parents to understand key areas of need and to plan the assessment process. This helps us to establish which other members of the MSA team might need to be involved.

Following the initial assessment we complete an assessment report and develop a bespoke intervention plan to fit a child's individual needs. No two plans are the same but examples of what we might recommend are outlined below.
  • An extensive intervention package involving occupational therapy, psychological interventions, speech and language therapy, family work, home based specialist education and outreach. This might be suggested for a child with complex needs whose presentation has a severe impact on their ability to leave the family home.
  • A targeted intervention to help a school develop threaputic learning strategies for a young person.
  • A therapeutic package delivering psychologial and occupational therapy strategies to reduce anxiety symptoms.
Each MSA plan is overseen by a case manager, who co-ordinates the programme. Specific evidence based outcome measures are used to monitor progress and the effectiveness of the interventions delivered by our team.

Further details of the therapy and education options we might suggest following assessment are described in the pages within this section.
