What we do
The CDNT 6 offices and clinic spaces are located in The Gables, Woodlands Centre, Renmore; in 35 Lower Newcastle, and in Orchard Centre, Gort. Team members meet children, youths and their families in locations across the network including homes, schools and clinics.
The CDNT team supports a child’s development, well-being and participation in family and community life. It is the role of the CDNT to share knowledge, information and skills with families so that they can further support their child’s development. This will help children and young people to develop, learn, and participate in everyday activities.
The model of service is based on each child/young person having an agreed plan based on the child and family’s needs. This is called an Individual Family Support Plan.
