Knowledge and Practice Hubs

Working with disabled children knowledge and practice hub

Learning points

  • Quick reference and in-depth information for both mainstream safeguarding and specialist disability social workers on different aspects of working with disabled children, those with learning disabilities and on the autism spectrum.
  • Includes legal guides to help ensure your practice is compliant, for example for children receiving different types of short break or transitioning to adult services.
  • Case examples, including a Learn as a group session that takes you through a safeguarding case, help you apply guidance and research to your practice.
  • Test your knowledge of the law and research findings in relation to disabled children (only available to organisations with a workforce licence).

The resources in this hub can help you meet point 3 and point 8 of the Knowledge and skills statement for child and family practitioners: Child development.
