Physical Difficulties Support Service

We are a team of specialist teachers that provide support and advice around children and young people with physical difficulties. 

Advisory teachers for physical difficulties.

How we can help

  • advice on children accessing the curriculum and adapting the educational environment,

  • recommend and advise on resources and equipment which will support children and help them to progress,

  • liaise with health professionals to ensure schools have the knowledge and training to keep children and young people safe,

  • ensure your child’s voice is heard and reflected in their provision and outcomes.
