Somerset's Children with Disabilities Service offer a range of support, information and advice, outlined below.
We believe that the basic needs for disabled children are no different from those of any other child. But we recognise that some disabled children have additional needs, or face additional barriers which inhibit and prevent their inclusion in society. And it is those children, that we endeavour to support.
The team works closely with colleagues in the health and Special Educational Needs and Disabilities services.
This service covers:
Children's Social Care Disability Service
Social Care disability early support services
Short Breaks Service
Children’s Autism Outreach Team (for children up to age 14)
