If your child has been invited for a face-to-face appointment or procedure, it’s important you still come unless you hear otherwise.
To help keep everyone safe, only one parent or carer can attend. No other family or friends can visit.

Tics and neuro-developmental movements (TANDeM) referrals

Who can refer

We accept referrals from health professionals, including paediatricians and psychiatrists, based in the local community.

Why are children referred to us?

We are a neurodevelopmental movements service and offer specialist assessment, intervention and support with the management of neurodevelopmental movement disorders.

Please refer to us if tics and/or stereotypies are the primary concern and you are referring for assessment and management advice in relation to these. If the primary concern is a co-morbidity relating to the movement disorder (e.g. anxiety, ADHD), please refer to the relevant local service (e.g. CAMHS). We accept referrals for children up to the age of 16 years.

How to make a referral
