Our child’s development

0to19torbay.co.uk/

Every child is unique and develops differently. Each will struggle with different things. While some seem to breeze through life and school, others can find certain things very difficult. This can come out in their behaviour and it can be hard for families and schools to know the best way to support them. There is never a simple explanation for why a child is struggling. Often it is a matter of trial and error to find out what works and setting realistic expectations for each individual child.

This “First Steps” booklet is for those caring for a child with development needs. It is a record and a guide.

As a record it is for you to hold, keep updated and share with anyone involved. Recording needs and discussing them as a family might be enough, but if you need further help (from school, friends or health professionals) you can share what you like from this booklet. This way everyone is kept on track, and you will not have to keep repeating your story.

As a guide, it takes you through a comprehensive assessment of your child. You can then focus on areas of need using the initial tips in each section, seeking help from appropriate professionals if required.

Virtual Drop In with a school nurse

0to19torbay.co.uk

We are trailing weekly virtual drop-in sessions at 3 secondary schools across Torbay from September. Young people will be able to attend a virtual drop in with your school nurse – Yes, that’s right, that means you don’t have to talk face to face about your worries – which we know can put you off getting help.

The Purpose of this Virtual drop-in is to support Young People with any worries or concerns to do with health. A virtual drop-in gives young people the opportunity to discuss any concerns they have by means of Attend Anywhere or over the phone, therefore making it a less daunting experience.

To find out when the school nurse is holding a session, talk to your school receptionist or teacher.
