Children with disabilities

How we support children and families

We work with various departments in NHS Highland to offer a service to help children and families. This includes working with:

  • Child Health and Disability
  • Occupational therapists
  • Physiotherapists
  • Speech and language therapists
  • Dietitians

The children's disability teams are part of the family teams. This makes sure all children with disabilities are considered first as children, and their needs are assessed in the context of their family, school and community. We want children and young people with disabilities need to be included in and nurtured by their families, their schools and their communities.
