We are delighted to share the updated Good Practice Points for health visitors around supporting living with a child with special needs.

Updated and authored by Hannah Bracey, FiHV, Health visitor Team Manager, Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust, it sets out what health visitors need to know about working with families who have a child with Special Needs.

It outlines how important the role of the HV is, some useful statistics, most commonly used terminology and useful points when working with these families.

Please note that this GPP is available to iHV members only.

If you’re not a member, please join us to get access to all of our resources.

The iHV is a self-funding charity – we can only be successful in our mission to strengthen health visiting practice if the health visiting profession and its supporters join us on our journey. We rely on our membership to develop new resources for our members.
