Description

We provide an individual home assessment of a disabled child or young person, to identify the need for specialised equipment and/or adaptations to the family home. We work with colleagues in Housing to secure or adapt appropriate housing and facilitate access to Disabled Facilities Grants.

The therapists would bring in interpreters or supporters as required to ensure that children and families are fully engaged with the assessment and planning processes.
