children bibic home charityNurturing potential for happy, fulfilling lives

bibic is a small national charity passionate about making a positive difference to change lives.

Since 1972, we’ve helped more than 14,000 children and young people with disabilities, developmental difficulties and special educational needs reach their potential.

We offer assessments and bespoke developmental therapy to help children and their families live fulfilling lives and training to parents and professionals; available from our National Assessment Centre in Langport, Somerset and via our outreach services for schools and other organisations.

Who we see

We see children and young people age 6 months to 25 years old with or without a diagnosis, experiencing a variety of difficulties and symptoms. We help with a wide range of neurological and genetic conditions including brain injuries, Autism spectrum disorder (ASD), Cerebral palsy, Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), Global developmental delay (GDD), Dyslexia, Down’s syndrome, Sensory processing disorder and many more. You do not require a referral to come to bibic for help.

These difficulties can affect a child’s ability to communicate as well as develop socially and physically and often have a profound effect on life at home and school.

Giving hope for brighter futures

Having benefitted from of our holistic programme, many parents say they are more aware, confident and able to make informed choices about issues affecting their child’s life.

The children we have helped live more independent lives, are more confident and their families look forward to brighter futures; several have gone to university and many are in employment citing bibic as playing a key part in their progress.

Who we are

We exist to help families and their children age 6 months to 25 years old with conditions affecting their development, social, communication and learning abilities; we passionately believe that every child deserves to reach their potential.

At times, living with disabilities and difficulties can become overwhelming and parents, carers and teachers need our expertise to help them better understand and support a child’s behaviour and needs.

On average, 3 children in every UK classroom have some form of learning or developmental difficulty and less than 8% of disabled children receive regular support from the government. With continuing cuts to education and health services, parents cannot get the help they need to support their child, and as a result, the demand for our service is overwhelming.

We treat every child as the wonderful unique individual they are. Our programme gives professionals, families and their children skills and strategies to overcome daily challenges that many of us take for granted, so that life at home and school is more fun and rewarding.

Depending on a child's needs and difficulties, we help them learn to: feed themselves, sit without support, move without help, smile, cuddle, say I love you, laugh, communicate their needs, cope better in the world around them and sit with others where they once sat alone.

Sometimes, it really is the simple things that make a big difference and help families and their children to live a better, happier life.
