    Impact

    The children's development will progress so that they are able to access similar activities to other children of a similar age. They will also be able to integrate more easily into mainstream schooling than they otherwise would. Parents/Carers will receive emotional and practical support to help them to cope with the disadvantages of having disabled children.
