Cornwall Council - Physical and Medical Needs Advisory Service
Services and organisations that have the Local Offer flash have filled out inclusion information, meaning that they meet the needs of people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
Providing support to students with Physical Disabilities and medical needs who attend mainstream schools across Cornwall. The key target is to ensure maximum access to the school curriculum. This involves cooperating with medical professionals (OTs and Physios) to ensure good physical access through the provision of appropriate equipment ( ramps, toilets, seating etc); as well as often using ICT to improve learning opportunities and to maximise independent recording. Referrals are accepted from schools (usually the SENCO), from medical professionals and from other colleagues in CFS Support Services.
