Children: Disabled

Volume 475: debated on Friday 16 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families whether the Aiming High for Disabled Children programme's core offer will include provision to increase assistance given by medical professionals in applying for aids, adaptations and benefits. (203690)

I have been asked to reply.

The national Core Offer, which was published on 15 May 2008, is a national statement of what parents of disabled children can expect from public services. These expectations are based on the five areas of information, transparency, participation, feedback and assessment. The services, which are developed locally will vary according to the needs of the disabled child and what parents want.
