Every child deserves the best possible chance to reach their potential
We help children and young people with disabilities and conditions affecting their ability to communicate and learn, as well as develop socially and physically.
We believe that every child deserves the opportunity to achieve their potential.
What we do
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.
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. You do not require a referral to come to bibic for help.
We support developmental difficulties, learning disabilities and special educational needs (SEN) and a wide range of conditions including brain injury, 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.
Enabling independence, confidence and 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 and young people we have helped understand their condition better, live more independent lives, are more confident and look forward to the future; several have gone to university and many are in employment citing bibic as playing a key part in their progress.

Securing our future to help more children and families
On average 3 children in every UK classroom have some form of developmental or learning difficulty. And with only 1 in 13 children with a disability receiving any kind of support from the UK government, the demand for our service is overwhelming.
We rely 100% on donations and fundraising to run our service and because of our incredible supporters, since 1972, we’ve helped to change the lives of more than 14,000 children and their families.
“I don’t let myself think about Mia’s future. It’s too hard. But, what I do wish for, is that Mia would smile more. She deserves to be happy. For the first time, I believe that she will be and that’s because of bibic.”

what we do
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.
