Children with disabilities and their families: team working and the role of the key worker

  • Julia Graham

Student thesis: Doctoral Thesis


The unique nature of the needs of children with disabilities and the varied dynamics of family life mean that service provision cannot be boxed neatly into the individual arenas of health, education or social care. These children and their families’ present service providers with complex challenges that often test the system. The co-ordination of, and communication between, members of the team around the child often falls to the parent.
