Spotlight on JDB - Testing the National Neurodevelopmental Specifications
Supported by the Task and Finish Group, the Scottish Government has funded five Tests of Change areas including Aberdeen City, East Lothian, Fife, Highland and Stirling. These Tests of Change are supporting and exploring elements of The National Neurodevelopmental Specification: Principles and Standards of Care and how best to implement them. In the longer term, they aim to share learning and evidence which can be shared to improve support available to children and young people with neurodevelopmental support needs.
The Tests of Change areas are progressing well with feedback and updates due to be gathered by the Task and Finish Group in the coming weeks. The learning and outcomes will be collated in a report towards the end of July and shared more widely across NHS Boards and Local Authorities in Scotland to aid national implementation of the National Neurodevelopmental Specification for Children and Young People.
On 23 May, the Minister for Mental Wellbeing visited Touch Primary School in Dunfermline to highlight the work that they are doing with Fife Council and NHS Fife in the Test of Change. This was a really positive visit with fantastic input and discussion from staff and pupils.
You can find tweets from the visit online.
