If you were receiving visits and support from the Hearing Impairment Team, Vision Impairment Team, Social Communication and Autism Team or Physical Impairment Team prior to lockdown/ school closures please go to the schools information portal STePS Help for Covid-19 page where you will find some important information and updates from these teams. Please remember that The Early Intervention Team also continue to work at home and are available to contact.
Here you will find some key messages from staff including important advice about specialist equipment. You may be unsure about how to provide accessible learning resources for children with disabilities. You may be wondering how and where to signpost families who have concerns about hearing aids, opthamology appointments, specialist seating etc. You will find some useful information on these sorts of things in these messages to you so please do take the time to read them.
Also on this website page we have uploaded a letter to parents/ carers. Please can you forward this letter to the parents/ carers of children who were receiving support from one of our teams.
Finally you will see a list of links to useful websites, resources and downloads specific to children with these needs and relevant in the current situation.
