I will need to meet your child at the initial appointment. I do know though that many children aren’t going to want to sit through the whole session! Plus sometimes parents need to discuss sensitive topics out of earshot. So you may wish to bring a second adult to the appointment who can then take your child back home or off for a play after the first 20 minutes. Your child doesn’t necessarily need to attend follow ups, although ideally they would join us periodically if long term support is needed.
