Specialist Services

Our aim is create safe professional, empathic services to those with learning Disabilities. Our approach is client-led which means we work at a level and pace appropriate to each client’s skills and ability, with no hidden agenda or assumed outcomes. We adopt a total communication approach, using Makaton signing, pictures, photos and creative tools to help them express and explore their thoughts and feelings effectively.
