Book About Me – Learning Disability8 likes
Audience – children and young people, parents, healthcare professionals
The purpose of this booklet is for others to find out crucial information about a child or young person with high support needs in a short time-frame. It could be used by a new support worker at home, staff at a short-term break service, a learning assistant or teacher at school or a nurse if the person has had to be admitted into hospital. It also contains essential information should an emergency situation occur – whether it is a social care or medical emergency.
