Professor Luke Clements provides a detailed explanation of the process by which children’s services in England should assess the support needs of disabled children and their families.
It is divided into the following sections:
- Assessing a disabled child’s need for social care support
- The ‘eligibility decision’: what needs must be met
- Carers’ assessments
- What type of support can be provided?
- Common problems
- Resources and links
The talk was commissioned by Full of Life – a charity that provides information and support to families living within the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.
