The team consists of:
- Head of service
- Assistant head of service
- Speech and language therapist
- Six specialist teaching assistants
Each authority has a named lead professional who liaises with the team and identifies appropriate schools and pupils for ComIT intervention.
The team can work individually or with groups of children by using thorough identification and support processes. A child is not required to hold a statement to access ComIT intervention.
ComIT does not receive direct requests to work with children from individual schools or parents. These come to ComIT through the school SenCo/AenCo to the authority lead professional.
