Support for Families with Disabled Children.

Care Quality Commission, 2012

This review looked at the support available for families with children that have a disability.

This review focused on families that have children under the age of 19 with:

  • a learning disability
  • autism or Autistic Spectrum Disorders
  • communication needs
  • sensory needs
  • mental health and behavioural support
  • mobility needs
  • technology dependence

In particular, this review looked at:

  • The availability of specialist health services for disabled children and young people and their families.
  • An assessment of the quality of support in a geographical area linked to primary care trusts (PCTs).
  • The ‘building blocks’ of the care pathway that are of particular importance to families.
