WEBINAR session,


This course is delivered via a live webinar which is trainer led.

Delegates must have access to a laptop or a computer as this session is not accessible via a mobile phone or ipad and it is necessary to set up a 'Microsoft Teams' account to access the session.

This specialist training workshop is aimed at professionals who are experienced in working with disabled children and who have already undertaken Generalist training. It is also aimed at professionals from Social Care Assesment teams and the Police who may be involved in child protection enquiries involving disabled children.

Social workers from mainstream social care or CAMHS teams should consider attending if they may be key workers for children with mild/moderate LD, autism or other neurodevelopmental difficulties. Early help professionals who work with children with these difficulties should attend.

SENCOs who work with disabled children in mainstream schools and staff, especially safeguarding leads from special schools are welcome. 

Objectives: (delegates will be able to):

  • Describe the safeguarding risks disabled children face and why professionals might overlook them
  • Identify tools available to be used when safeguarding disabled children
  • Demonstrate an ability to analyse what action is needed to address safeguarding risks
  • Describe what action should be taken around safeguarding in complex cases
  • List the agencies/professionals that are available to gain advice and guidance from outside of their own agency
