The Integrated Disability Service (IDS) is a partnership, bringing together professionals from education and health to provide a range of services to support disabled children and young people and their families at home, school and in other settings. One contact opens the door to a range of different teams including the:
- Child Development Service providing a co-ordinated, multi-agency assessment and follow up services to pre-school children with complex needs.
- Birth to Three Portage Service providing home-based teaching for babies and very young children up to the age of three.
- Pre-School Service, who support children in mainstream Early Years’ Settings across Warwickshire.
- SEN Childcare Service, who support the inclusion of children and young people with SEN and disabilities up to the age of 18 in a range of childcare settings.
- Physical Disability Team, which includes Occupational Therapy and Specialist Teachers and an Inclusion Assistant, who provide advice and support to ensure that children achieve the greatest possible independence both at home and school.
- Hearing and Complex Team, which is made up of staff who work with children with Severe and Complex Needs in mainstream schools and children with hearing Loss.
- Volunteer Team, who work alongside other IDS teams, providing extra support to children, young people and families.
