“Early help 1-1 work with my son. Having the short breaks card to use for his sessions with Enable Ability.”

“Access to the inclusion centre and the excellent support they receive in school means they are able to go to school with peers in their local community. We finally have a SEN play scheme they can access in Paulsgrove and regular activities they can attend with Enable Ability. The ND profiling tool is also really useful and is providing schools with a good overview of needs prior to diagnosis.”

“CAMHS are brilliant, regular contact, no problems reaching them etc.”
