The Team Around The Child
Multi-Agency Service Co-ordination for Children with Complex Needs and their Families
This is a practical guide for developing individualised teams for disabled babies and children who are helped by many professionals from health, education and social services.
The four main sections are -
- The Team around the Child Model and why it is needed
- The benefits of the Team around the Child model
- The Team around the Child as a system for a locality
- The Team around the Child in the wider context
The TAC system, accepted as good practice in several countries, offers opportunities to radically re-appraise how practitioners use time and resources in pursuit of effective support for the increasing population of infants who have multifaceted conditions and disabilities.
