Q: explain the different types of support that are available for disabled children and young people and those with specific requirements
A: Children with multiple disablilities such as deaf-blind children need particular support. With funding from DFES, SENSE have produced a practical guide on improving services for deaf-blind children. [ See Reaching out to Deaf-blind children (Sense 2004)............Local Authorities, Primary Care Trusts and NHS Trusts ensure that: Families are offered a range of appropriate family support
services, through multi-agency packages of care, (including domiciliary care, community nursing and other health support, play, leisure, childcare and skills training e.g. in health care interventions, behavioural techniques); These packages are flexible and responsive to children's and families' needs (including those of fathers and siblings), provide positive and stimulating experiences for disabled children, and promote their inclusion in the local community. Services are provided by both universal and specialist agencies, and are available for all disabled children, including those with complex health needs, autistic spectrum disorders and multiple disabilities such as deaf-blind children; The options of receiving direct payments or services are equally available; Training in managing sleep and behaviour problems is offered at an early stage to parents who need it, and Children leaving hospital and requiring continuing care receive co-ordinated multi-agency packages of care according to individual need, by applying similar principles to those identified in the Health Service Circular/Local Authority Circular HSC 2001/015: LAC (2001)18 (18). ............... ]

The different types of support that are available for disabled children and young people and those with specific requirements are ;
1. Speech and language therapy- they will usually work in partnership with parents, teachers and support staff and anyone else who has regular contact with the child and provide training and coaching sessions and provide them with ideas and strategies to put into place to help promote the child’s speech. I myself have sat in on a session with a child in school when the speech therapist came to have a meeting with a child and she gave me advice sheets on how best to help the child with his speech including picture cards with words on with either two, three and even four syllables and the child was encouraged to clap the amount of syllables while saying the word.
2. Support from health professionals additional learning support- a child who has a disability like down syndrome may need extra support in the classroom to help them learn in my setting we have a child who comes in every Tuesday for social skills and he has his own teaching assistant to support him with his needs. A child with epilepsy is likely to require regular monitoring from health professionals and medication, which needs to be adjusted appropriately.
3. Assistive technology- these would be anything which will help someone for example wheelchairs, hearing aids, walking frames in my setting we use large computer key boards for some children and for a child who is blind you could use software which reads text from a screen there are many different aids available for children and adults to help them with everyday tasks.
4. Specialised services - in my setting we have a special educational needs coordinator and other services such as physio therapist, speech therapists, school nurse, social services we use these services in order to provide the right care for the child.
