What is the purpose of the Disability Register?
The purpose of the register is to enable Bracknell Forest Children’s Services and Health Services, together with voluntary organisations, to work more closely together to identify and plan for children and young people with disabilities and their parents/ carers.
Why should I register my child?
The register enables services to:
- identify gaps in provisions for children with disabilities and their parents or carers
- plan services to meet the needs of children with disabilities and their parents or carers
- plan work around the Year 9 Transition Review (for children who have a statement of special educational needs) or Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP)
- plan services for when children with disabilities leave school
The register also forms the basis of a mailing list to inform and consult with children and their parents or carers about new and existing services, gaps in services, changes to benefits, holiday schemes and other activities.
