Orchard Manor offers a supportive living and learning environment for young adults who have complex learning difficulties and is one of the few services in the country that is also able to support those with complex health needs and associated difficulties. These may be as a result of conditions such as cerebral palsy, acquired brain injury, degenerative conditions or autism requiring a specialist approach.
The young people may have multiple disabilities, including sensory and physical impairments and benefit from specialist facilities designed to meet their needs.
Autism Bedfordshire is a charity that provides services to individuals with autism, their families, carers and professionals across Bedfordshire. Our key purpose is to provide emotional and practical support as well as information, advice, guidance and advocacy.
The outcomes our services deliver (as evidenced by our monitoring and evaluation) are:
1. Individuals with autism and their families will feel less isolated.
2. Individuals with autism will develop confidence, self-esteem, communication, social and life skills.
3. Parents will feel less stressed and better able to cope.
4. Parents will improve their knowledge about autism and the services available.
Autism is a lifelong disability so our membership reflects this as we support both children and adults. We run countywide services for our members including:
- family support groups (L.O.A.F. - Loads of Autistic Fun)
- youth groups (Wanted Fun)
- summer activity schemes
- extended services (e.g. trampolining, golf and swim sessions)
- skills training courses for adults with autism
- social groups for adults with autism
- parent training
- autism awareness training for professions (levels 1, 2 and 3)
- a helpline service (01234 350704) with trained and experienced team members on hand to answer calls (anything from services enquiries to crisis calls).
Autism Bedfordshire’s members can access books and other resources from our library and will receive our bi-monthly newsletter giving details about our services and other groups and activities that may be of interest. We also communicate information to members and our staff through e-newsletters. We have a website that anyone can access and we are on Facebook and Twitter.
Living with autism isn’t easy, but finding out all about it should be. www.autismlinks.co.uk covers who to talk to, where to go and contains lots of helpful advice all in one place.
Some estimate that 1 in 100 people have autism. Others say it’s more like 1 in 88. Whatever the real figures, the good news is that there’s lots of support out there to help you make sense of the world of autism. Charities, support groups, and specialist service providers, are all ready to share advice and experience whenever you need it.
At Balliol we believe in an aspirational curriculum, which offers all children memorable experiences within an exciting, challenging and creative environment alongside effective teaching of key skills for life and learning.
We are a day nursery, which is part of a franchise.
Banana Moon Day Nursery is committed to the inclusion of all children. We believe all children have the right to be cared for and educated to develop to their full potential. We have a Special Educational Needs and Disability policy in place to support this.
As part of our vision, we aim to promote and lead a culture of shared values. They are the solid foundation and main principles of our culture. By consistently working hard to maintain our values, we will keep what makes Barnfield so special – an organisation that is deeply committed to delivering quality teaching and learning and providing innovative educational opportunities to the communities of Luton and beyond.
Bedford Borough Parent Carer Forum.
A parent carer forum is a group of parent carers of children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). We work in partnership with those that provide and plan services for our children to make sure that they know what we need.
Our aim is for high quality, cost effective services that meet the needs of the young people and their families. We do this by listening to the views and experiences of our members then feed this back to managers, commissioners and service providers. We are not a support group or a protest group but we aim to tell those that plan and deliver services what families think, what families need, what is or isn't important and what works or doesn't work.
Provides a positive environment for scale model construction.
At Bedford Academy we recognise and value the importance of working in partnership with parents. We listen to parents/carers and work together with them to ensure their children get the best out of their time here. All parents are able to contact key staff at the Academy by email, phone or in person and are welcomed to attend a number of events, including target setting and review days, parents’ evenings and information evenings during the school year.
During the academy day, parents/carers are encouraged to contact their child’s form tutor or Learning Village Leader if they have an urgent query. In addition to the support provided to all parents/carers, parents/carers of SEND students with more serious or complicated SEND needs will have an identified ‘key person’ at the academy, who will be their main point of contact and will also meet with them at least once every term to review their child’s progress and agree targets and strategies to ensure good progress. Parents/Carers are invited to attend the Access Coffee mornings/evenings throughout the year to give feedback and share ideas on the SEN support provided by the Academy. Refreshments will be provided.
