Every child and young adult deserves the best possible chance to reach their potential

bibic is a national charity based in Langport, Somerset. It delivers therapeutic programmes to children and young adults aged 6 months to 25 years with developmental and neurological difficulties. bibic sees them with or without diagnosis and supports a wide range of neurological and genetic conditions.

What we do

Our team of highly experienced developmental therapists provide assessments and design tailored therapy programmes for every child and family to help:

– Children and young adults manage their difficulties, to cope better in the world around them.

– Parents and carers understand their child’s behaviour and needs.

– Teachers support struggling children and young adults emotionally and educationally.

Who we see

Children and young adults do not require a referral to come to bibic for help. We support developmental difficulties, learning disabilities, special educational needs (SEN) and genetic conditions. We help many children and young adults with Autism, Brain injury, Cerebral palsy, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Global Developmental Delay (GDD), Dyslexia, Down’s Syndrome, Sensory processing difficulties and many more.

Enabling independence, confidence and brighter futures

We empower desperate parents and carers with the support and strategies they need to improve not only their young person’s life, but their family’s too. We help children and young adults understand their condition better and live more independent lives; they become more confident and look forward to the future because of bibic’s therapy programme; 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, their children and young adults with conditions affecting their development, social, sensory, motor, communication and learning abilities; we passionately believe that every child and young adult 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 and young adult as the wonderful unique individual they are. Our programme gives professionals, families, their children and young adults 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 or young adult'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, their children and young adults to live a happier life.
