Early support and early expectations when your child has complex needs

The booklet and workshop materials were developed by the National Managed Clinical Network for Children with Exceptional Healthcare Needs, Dr Marit Boot (NMCN CEN Manager), Dawn Moss (NMCN CEN Lead Clinician) and Claire Edwards (Training Consultant).

Early support after your child is born or diagnosed with complex needs was identified as a priority by the parents in the NMCN CEN Service Users Group. This project provides an Early Support booklet with information for parents and a workshop for professionals. The workshop information includes a PowerPoint presentation, facilitator notes, exercises and handouts which can be used to facilitate a workshop in your area. The booklet and workshop are tools that can be used as part of your continuing professional development and they include a training certificate. Please contact the NMCN CEN if you would like help with the workshop.

Please see our Support Booklet for further information.
