Covid-19 - Important Notice: Skylarks has suspended all face-to-face sessions in order to protect our children and families during the Coronavirus outbreak. However we are still here for our families. We are running many of our activities live online using Zoom. We are producing new exciting video content to share with families for use at home. We will be running some activities over the summer holidays and signposting others in our e-newsletters. We are also available to respond to queries by telephone, FaceTime or email. To register with us (either as a family or as a professional) and receive our weekly emailed newsletters, please click on the purple button which says Register in the top right hand corner of this website.

How the service works:

You can use this booking form to request face to face meeting which run at The Crossway Centre on Tuesdays (2.30-5.30) and Fridays (10-12). Once you have booked please email with your preferred time for the appointment and I will confirm.

If you would prefer a video or phone call then these are available on Wednesdays and Thursdays and can be booked here


This service is free of charge. However, this is a costly service to run and we suggest voluntary donation of £20 for a telephone consultation and £50 - £150 for case work.
