Wendy is the Schools Liaison Officer for the charity and she explained: “Part of my role is to talk to teachers about bibic and its work with children. During each visit I will discuss what we do and the therapy and training we can offer. We also want to make schools aware that when parents make referrals they can be involved too and I will explain the level of involvement needed and why it is important."
Wendy continued: "In addition to this, I will discuss the referral process and how teachers can go about referring children, who they believe would benefit from our help, to us. Any schools that would like to request a visit or further information can do so by contacting me via firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 01458 253344.”
bibic is a registered charity that receives no government funding and relies on support and donations to provide the life-changing help needed by many children and their families. The charity helps children and young people, aged from six months to 18 years, with conditions affecting their development and learning abilities to achieve their potential for a happier and more fulfilled life. These include developmental conditions such as Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Down’s Syndrome, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia and brain injury.
Wendy added: “As well as the visits, we are also able to offer training sessions to teachers and parents. The training sessions can be tailored to each individual school and their needs. People interested in the training should contact us for more details.”
bibic has a national assessment centre in Somerset. Its therapists work closely with families nationwide to create a therapy programme, which provides them with the skills and strategies to support their child or children.
