For Parents of Children with Special Needs

If you live in the UK and have a child with Special Needs under the age of 3.

I recommend you take a look at this website, and order the info pack!

Mine arrived a couple of days ago, wish I'd had it 5 years ago! It really would have been wonderful for keeping track of who is who, who is doing what and all the things that we were going through with Michael and all the professionals involved in our lives. It also would have saved me having to go through things with every new person that got involved

This website provides information, news and up-dates on Early Support (previously known as the Early Support Pilot Programme), a UK government initiative to improve services for disabled children under three and their families. The website promotes multi-agency working and is for anyone who works regularly with very young children and their families.

There is also information for families - click on the ‘For families’ link to find out more.

Early Support involves the UK Department for Education and Skills (DfES), Sure Start and the Department of Health. It supports families and people working for education, health, social services and the voluntary sector.
If you are not sure where to start on this website, please click on 'view next' on the top navigation bar and follow our 'virtual tour'.

This is one of the booklets that arrived in my package on Autism

I will say one thing though to whoever designed it, the folders for storing older info! Could have done with those being a LOT BIGGER!!
