Responses from Children and parents as part of the consultation day

SUPPORT at out of school activities

  • Training of staff training/ availability
  • Able to access community activities without parents staying
  • To have a ‘pool’ of trained support workers to help access mainstream clubs including scouts, martial arts etc. including higher functioning autism/aspergers (therefore, no requirement to start new clubs up) - Child needs to be with someone they know well using service

INFORMATION

  • To have a co-ordinator for parents to talk to so they can tailor the needs of each child and inform services, clubs, help available to them
  • Information- what is available/ what are we entitled to? And how do Parents and children find out? –

CHILDCARE

  • Childcare needed realistic hours i.e. until 6pm
  • Emergency care/ after school informal ‘babysitting’ service
  • Developing childcare/ extended services to meet the needs of disabled children and families

Parents have also said that

  • Feel able to spend time with siblings
  • Be confident in the provision for short breaks issues around being safe adressed
  • holiday play schemes equipped with staff to support child to oversee safety and that child gets maximum benefit from setting
