We are a team of experienced learning disability nurses and assistant practitioners.

We are able to offer a service when a child or young person requires specialist support arising from their learning disability or autism and its impacts on their health. We often do this by working to advise parents or other health professionals working with that child.


Please note: this service is only available to people living in South Cumbria.

Children aged up to 18 years:

  • with global development delay or learning disabilities
  • who require specialist support beyond universal and targeted service

Children aged 2-11 years:

  • who have a diagnosis of autism
  • we have a limited offer of services in the process of assessment for autism
