About North Tipperary

The North Tipperary Early Intervention and School Age Teams provide specialist therapeutic assessment and intervention to children with complex disabilities and/or developmental delay in the North Tipperary catchment area. The service is a partnership between Enable Ireland and the HSE.

The service is child and family centred and is offered across a range of settings. These may include the centre, home, school and preschool as appropriate.

Children access services though either the Early Intervention team (from Birth to approximately 6 years) or through the School Age Team (from approximately 6 – 18 years of age).

The teams strive to deliver an interdisciplinary service which is:

  • Child and Family Centred
  • Team Based
  • High Quality
  • Accessible
  • Integrated
  • Safe

Both teams include psychologists, speech and language therapists, physiotherapists and occupational therapists. The Early Intervention Team also includes an early intervention educator, a paediatric link worker and a paediatric nurse. The School Age Team has some access to a counselling public health nurse.

The teams are supported by a Clinical Manager and administrative staff.
