Neurodevelopmental support: A guide for professionals

This document outlines the statutory commissioned offer from Health and Local Authority of services and support available for children, young people and their families in Liverpool at different stages of their journey:

  • early help/pre-diagnosis
  • during the assessment and diagnosis stage; and
  • post-diagnosis.


Local Offer


The Integrated Comprehensive CAMHS Offer is delivered by a range of providers from the voluntary and statutory sector.  The offer takes an asset-based approach, ensuring accessible information and support is available at all levels i.e. public health, early intervention, early identification, prevention and intervention.  It is a stepped model of care and children and young people can access the pathway at any stage dependent on their mental health needs. The focus is to ensure that children and young people and their families are supported at the universal level within their communities.

The Integrated Comprehensive CAMHS Offer also follows Liverpool’s Levels of Need Framework which has been developed to support practitioners to work together to promote children’s welfare and provide early help. The ‘windscreen’ model is used to assist in assessing and identifying a child/young person’s level of need; what type of services/resources may meet those needs and the process to follow in moving from the identification of the need to the provision of services.
