A special needs child should have the same opportunities as any other child. They should have fun and develop their independence. To give them a chance to try new things and make friends.
Although caring for a special needs child can be challenging for even the most experienced parent or carer, the tailored support KETRA offers helps families cope – and gives special needs children a chance to thrive.
KETRA’S short breaks services offer lots of activities and opportunities in the Kingswood estate community.
Short breaks and outings give parents and siblings time to recharge, too. They’re a lifeline for families who feel overwhelmed or overcome by the challenges.
We provide a key worker to support disabled children and their families. They work with the family to make sure the young person’s opinions get heard. If they need it, we can speak on their behalf.
The key worker will help children and young people build the confidence to lead their own lives. This includes teaching or helping with life skills, friendships, community activities and getting around.
For those with more complex needs, it may be about celebrating the small steps.
If you know a family with a special needs child, please do contact us.
