Education & Care

People with disability often require more support within their daily activities such as school or university to be able to thrive in educational environments.

The level of support depends on individual needs and wants.

There is a shift in the research and knowledge gain over recent years from being in groups of individuals with same or similar disabilities educated together or in group environments or specially allocated schools, to now the belief that inclusion of a person with disability in a school or university with the extra support or adaptations they require is more beneficial.

And that is, beneficial for the growth of not only children with disability, but with the greater school population as well.

Perhaps a person needs ramps to get in and out of an activity, or a carer to help them undertake a task they wish to do.

Whatever the need, each person is at the centre of a plan to ensure they get the most from there educational path and get to enjoy school as every child should.
