Disability

This page provides an overview of the disability practice triggers designed to support and strengthen social work practice.

Overview

A set of disability practice triggers and corresponding key informations have been developed to strengthen social work knowledge and skills in relation to disability. The triggers are essentially a prompt to staff of the services and processes required when working with disabled children and young people. The triggers and key informations have been developed from both from practice experience and literature reviews on communicating with disabled children and respite care for disabled children.
