Access for disabled children and young people to extended schools and children's centres: a development manual

Extending _inclusionThis new guide is designed to support the inclusion of disabled children in children's centres and extended schools. Funded by the Department for Children, Schools and Families, it brings together learning and information for those managing and working in children's centres, extended schools and those in local authorities and voluntary organisations working with them. 

It will support them in improving access and inclusion for disabled children, young people and their families. It also includes useful case studies and a CD of resources.

Extended schools and children's centres are designed to provide extra learning opportunities, childcare and a range of activities for all children and young people. In addition, for families with disabled children extended activities offer new opportunities for participation in their community.  This new guide will support planners, managers and staff in all services to enable disabled children and their families to lead ordinary lives.
