We are working with the North East and Cumbria Learning Disability Network to develop a WebApp for parents and carers of young people who have a learning disability or who have a child or young person who might have a learning disability.

The WebApp will include:

  • Tools to help identify a learning disability.
  • Films that explain what a learning disability is and what it isn’t.
  • Films of families sharing their experiences and giving helpful advice, positive examples and practical information of where to go for further help.
  • Health conditions to look out for and advice about what to do.
  • Advice and guidance about the sorts of services, including voluntary sector organisations, that can be helpful.
  • Information about the importance of children and young people being on the GP learning disability register, receiving an ‘Annual Health Check’ and being immunised against flu.
  • Information on rights to reasonable adjustments to services.
