Children’s Learning Disability Therapeutic Service (CLDTS)

The Children’s Learning Disability Therapeutic Service provides support to children and young people with a severe learning disability whose presentation reflects the significant challenges they experience on a day to day basis.  Our service is based on Positive Behaviour Support values and principles with five main aims:

  1. To improve the quality of life of those children referred and their carer’s.
  2. To promote the mental health and emotional wellbeing of children and young people.
  3. To maintain and facilitate appropriate community placements and reduce the incidence of hospital admission.
  4. To work in partnership with education and community learning disability services to ensure timely support when required.
  5. To reduce the impact of behaviour that challenges for children with a learning disability and their carers’.


Referrals are accepted directly from a range of sources, including schools, Children’s Disability Teams and other staff within children’s services.
