A Community Paediatrician is a specialist doctor who has a different role to the paediatricians you typically see during a stay in hospital or follow up after a stay in hospital. A Community Paeditrician plays a key role in the identification of children who may have special educational needs. This professional is able to assess your child’s needs. As well as advising you about health matters, this doctor may discuss with you concerns about possible learning difficulties. Community paediatricians can fulfill an overview role on the services your child is receiving to ensure that they are being seen by all the necessary services and that this is done in a co-ordinated way. Community paediatricians can sometimes attend school meetings to provide information on a child/young person’s medical needs.
