Early Years Project

LD:NorthEast are proud to deliver our Early Years Project, supported by BBC Children in Need and now in it’s 7th year.

The project supports preschool children with complex learning / physical disabilities to learn and develop through play. This includes working with families, supporting them when engaging with health and care professionals, providing group and one-to-one support as well as encouraging families to support each other.

The support we offer is tailored to individual needs, and includes:

  • Weekday playgroups

  • Sign and sing sessions

  • Support to attend community Paediatrician clinics

  • School holiday activities, including family members

  • Support to attend specialist groups such as Music & Movement

  • Parent / carer support

  • Peer support and volunteering
