The Complex Needs Advisory team offer advice and guidance to primary and secondary schools across Pembrokeshire for children and young adults aged 3-19 years with complex learning needs.
Within the Complex Learning Needs team there is an advisory teacher and a specialist assistant.
On referral to the service, a pupil's needs are assessed and suitable recommendations made. If necessary, a programme of support for staff and the pupil will be developed and the complex needs assistant supports in the implementation of the programme. Programmes of support are re-assessed every five to six weeks to ensure that students are making good progress. The amount of time a student is involved with the service will vary dependent on the need of the young person.
Referrals are made through the child's school in discussion with the Headteacher or Additional Learning Needs Co-ordinator (ALNCo).
Additional concerns can be discussed with:
