Resources

For all resources associated with the Early Intervention Project, please see our brand new website!

We are currently working with a wide range of key people to develop a range of resources throughout the project. This webpage will be updated throughout the project, as practical tools for both family carers are professionals are created.

We will also signpost to resources made by other organisations which might be helpful for those supported children and young people with a learning disability whose behaviour challenges.

Briefing Paper: Early intervention for children with learning disabilities whose behaviours challenge

We are grateful to a group of key academics who have worked to pull together the data and research evidence in this area into a briefing paper.  A data supplement has also been produced, providing a thorough overview of the statistics behind the key messages of the briefing paper. Furthermore, an estimate of the number of children in England with learning disabilities whose behaviours challenge has been made - click here to see the report.

Remarkably, each of these papers is the first of their kind in the field of early intervention for children with learning disabilities whose behaviours challenge. Together, they form a strong case for better early intervention.

 

Education, Health and Care Plan Information Sheets

Education, Health and Care (EHC) plans are replacing Special Educational Needs (SEN) statements from September 2014. Together with family carers, we have developed two information sheets about EHC plans, one for families and the other for professionals.

For Families: Getting an Education, Health and Care Plan

For Professionals: Developing an Education, Health and Care Plan

Coming soon: We are working on creating a sample EHC plan, which both carers and professionals might find useful as a reference point. This will be uploaded here when it is finished.

 

Resources from other organisations

Campaign group Every Disabled Child Matters have produced a resource for parent carers with advice on law and where to go for more support when council cuts threaten children's services. It was developed with input from Alex Rook, Partner at Irwin Mitchell Solicitors and Barrister Steve Broach. The resource helps to explain the legal framework around the provision of short break services, highlighting opportunities for families with children to challenge cuts to these services. Click on the picture to see the resource.
