Some SchoolKit Clinics are initiated by a child’s school, others are initiated by a health professional, by a parent or carer, or by another person interested in improving the child’s wellbeing. However a clinic was initiated it usually makes most sense for the school – as host – to make all arrangements with the child’s family and to facilitate the running of the clinic.

If the reasons for needing a SchoolKit Clinic are school-based, the primary issues to be discussed are likely to be already known to the school’s learning and support team. This means that the school will have had time to collect information about the child’s learning and behaviour in all environments in the school.
