Help for children with additional needs or disabilities

In this section

  1. Help for children with additional needs or disabilities
  2. Home teaching
  3. Organisations that can help

We can help children with disabilities in the following situations:

  • family breakdown (either imminent or likely in the future), which is due to the additional stresses caused by bringing up a child with a disability, and which would be eased by one of our services
  • challenging behaviour from a child with a disability beyond what it would be reasonable to expect from a young person of that age
  • complex medical needs requiring a significant level of care beyond what it would be reasonable to expect when looking after a young person of that age
  • single carer, particularly if there are other children in the household
  • poverty, poor or inadequate housing or neighbourhood difficulties
  • no or limited extended family network
  • social exclusion because a young person's ability to have a new experience or to meet people outside the professional arena is limited
  • chances for a young person to gain skills and experience to support independence appropriate to their ability are not available
  • when there is discrimination due to disability
