Paediatric Therapies Family Support Project

28/07/2015 by toni.morley

Paediatric Therapies have been working on a family support project, speaking with families to understand and more effectively support the emotional health and wellbeing of parents and families of children and young people with a disability or additional needs.

Changes have included:

  • focussed training for staff
  • supervision provided by a Clinical Psychologist
  • working with staff and parents to capture their experience on film
  • offering peer support online
  • forums for group support

All of these changes have been influenced by service user/carer feedback
