Young Adults team

The Young Adult's team (YAT) is a Multidisciplinary team set up in 2021 to support school leavers with complex needs within CHO7.

We have a full clinical team comprising of Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Psychology, Social Work, Behavior Support, and Speech and language therapy.

The aims of the multidisciplinary team is:

  2. To support better, planned, and streamlined services for young adults with complex needs upon leaving school.
  3. To capture the goals and recommendations in the individual’s person-centred plan upon closing an episode of care, where relevant.
