Children with Disabilities

Introduction

 

This chapter covers the needs of children and young people with disabilities aged from birth to 25 years who have a special educational need or disability (SEND) and their families.

 

The chapter has been written by the Bedford Borough Parent Carer Forum  to conform with  the Children and Families Act.  This is new legislation which outlines legal requirements on Education, Health and Care providers with regard to children with disabilities.. It also specifies what they must do individually and how they must work together both strategically and operationally. The code of practice makes specific reference to the role that the JSNA plays in this regard.  Bedford Borough Council, Bedfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group (BCCG) and the Bedford Borough Parent Carer Forum (BBPCF) are working together to plan and implement the requirements of the Children and Families Act in relation to Children with Disabilities.
