Manual handling systems for supporting a physical curriculum

James Rhodes, marketing manager at Hillrom (Liko), discusses using manual handling systems to encourage mobilisation and prevent falls in specialist educational settings…

Many children with disabilities and SEN can benefit from a broad-ranging physical curriculum which covers every aspect of their development. With each unique child comes a varied learner profile, incorporating strengths, needs and short and long-term goals. Catering for a group of children with a complex and diverse range of physical, sensory, learning and medical needs takes strategic planning. 

Unlocking success for young people with complex needs

Unlocking success for young people with complex needs

Julie Hamilton, Clinical Services Director at Keys Group, discusses why specialist in-house support teams are key to unlocking barriers to success for young people with complex needs.

We know that children in care and young people with complex needs require robust support systems, and yet the diversity of their wide ranging needs can at times mean that the care provided by traditional support structures is inconsistent. In the face of ever-changing social care and education sectors, how can providers ensure that young people receive the support they need in order to thrive?

The challenges of September arise back as far as April when the new intake are offered places, but really begin as soon as pupils arrive on the first day of term.
