Supporting children and young people with or without a diagnosed condition
bibic has evolved into a national charity supporting not only brain injuries but a wide range of disabilities, developmental conditions and learning difficulties.
Importantly children and young people age 6 months to 25 years old can come to bibic with or without a diagnosis.
Are you worried about your child’s development, challenging behaviour, lack of communication and social interaction, learning difficulties or physical problems?
Are you feeling overwhelmed with school feedback, medical jargon, NHS appointments or care plans?
bibic supports many children and young people with an Educational Health Care Plan (EHCP) or Special Education Need Disability (SEND) but you do not need to have one to visit bibic for help.
bibic treats every child as the unique individual they are and will follow a similar style for each assessment with variations depending on the difficulties the child is experiencing.
bibic is not a diagnostic service, however, there are times when it may be relevant to carry out a screening assessment for a particular condition. This screening will not provide a diagnosis, but it will give an indicator of the likelihood of the condition being present, and may therefore provide some insight into a child’s difficulties.

If you have a child that bibic may be able to help, please get in touch by filling out an Enquire About Your Child form.
