Children & Young People’s Support  for 0-19’s with Disabilities or Additional Needs.

Twinkle House provides child centred support for a wide range of difficulties that Children and young people with Disabilities and Additional Needs may be experiencing such as social, emotional or behavioural problems, attachment and other mental health needs including stress, anxiety, depression.  It is our aim to provide meaningful and manageable strategies to work through at their pace to enable them to be more in control of their emotions, reduce their anxiety or stress and to reduce their difficulties, enabling each child to achieve their personal potential.  In doing so, children and young people will be more able to remain in school, make and keep friends and participate in activities in their community.

Parent/carer/guardian or support worker who is responsible for their welfare must remain on site for the duration of their suppor however may not need to be in the support session that will be conducted by our Nurse/Social Worker (qualified to work 1:1 with children) who may also have supporting Student Social Workers or Nurses in session.
