bibic is a small national charity making a big difference
Since 1972, we have evolved into a national charity supporting not only those with brain injuries but a wide range of disabilities, developmental conditions and learning difficulties; bibic passionately believes that every child deserves to reach their potential and live a fulfilling life.
We deliver assessments and bespoke developmental therapy to children and young adults age 6 months to 25 years old and training to parents and professionals. We see them with or without a diagnosis and support a wide range of difficulties. Including conditions such as autism, ADHD, cerebral palsy, global developmental delay (GDD), Down’s syndrome, sensory processing difficulties and many more.

Our holistic approach
We treat every young person as the unique individual they are and follow a similar style for each assessment with variations depending on the difficulties they are experiencing. It is this holistic and integrated approach that makes bibic’s individualised therapy so effective.
Assessments are delivered by a bibic developmental therapist to identify strengths, weaknesses and difficulties. In response to these outcomes, a bespoke programme of support is designed to address the underlying causes of those difficulties. Our approach empowers the young person, parents, carers and teachers with therapeutic interventions and strategies, helping the child to overcome challenges so that life at home and school is more fun and rewarding.

Our mission statement
“We offer holistic therapy to children and young adults, with neurological, behavioural and developmental challenges, enabling them to understand themselves and the world around them. We champion their perspective, helping others to see it too. Together we transform families’ lives so they can thrive.”
A blend of sensory, cognitive, emotional, developmental and physical exercises that support a child or young person’s specific needs. We go 360 and are for the whole family.
It’s what we do best. We know that the child/young person and their families can experience intense stress, isolation and exhaustion. We stand by their side to help them understand the specific needs, empowering them with strategies to support daily life and long-term development. Care shines here.
We recommend small changes which are achievable and make a big difference. We explore all areas of the individual’s development in order to unpick the foundation causes of their challenges and provide strategies to thrive.
We offer support with or without diagnosis. We find the answers families are searching for and explain them in terms that everyone can understand, no question is too silly. Always learning and always improving.
Many parents say that because of our support, they are more aware, confident and able to make informed choices about issues affecting their child’s life.
“The bibic report meant school could implement the recommendations and our son is now more likely to engage in education.”
“Our daughter is less isolated in school and more able to have positive relationships with peers and teachers.”
“We’re now able to do normal family things. Her academic skills have improved, she now sees to her own personal care, and gets herself about at school.”
“We now have a better understanding and the bibic strategies have changed our lives, I now recognise warning signs, when our son is struggling with life, and how to pre-empt a melt down and head it off.”
Help bibic achieve more for struggling families and their children
We receive no government funding and need to find approximately £480,000 to deliver our much-needed service every year. We could not do this without the incredible generosity of our loyal supporters, donors and fundraisers.
There is so much more we need to do to be able to reach the families who need our help.
