Information and Advice

Dear parents/carers,
One of our members kindly wrote to us with the below link to share with you all:
The National Disabled Identification (DID) Card was introduced in response to disabled people posting comments in a number of social media sites that they were getting tired of constantly having to carry their paperwork proving they were entitled to some form of disability benefit in order to obtain a concessionary rate.

Not every disability is visible. Parents of children with disabilities and special needs, whose children's disability is not immediately obvious, such as autism, global developmental delay and other disabilities, find it hard to explain their disability, especially if the children present may be unaware that they have a disability.

Disabled individuals often do not want to request or highlight the fact they have a disability when they would be entitled to concessionary rates. There can be stigma attached to requesting disabled rates. Hopefully, this card is beneficial to you.
Best wishes,
Hillingdon PCF,
On behalf of the Steering Committee



The aim of this guide is to equip parents across the world with a significant bank of knowledge to ease panic and educate their children about the science of the mind.



The website provides information on the support your child/young person may require or receive to talk, move and play from the following Hillingdon children's therapy services:  Hillingdon Occupational Therapy (Hillingdon Plays) Hillingdon Physiotherapy (Hillingdon Moves) Hillingdon Speech and Language Therapy (Hillingdon Talks)



The purpose of the local offer is to enable parents and young people to see more clearly what services are available in their area and how to access them. Knowing what is available and how it is accessed gives more choice and control over what support is right for your child. Parents need to know how to access provision:
