Caring For Children With Complex Needs - Nhs Choices

If your child has been diagnosed with an illness, disability or sensory impairment that needs a lot of additional support for them to live day to day, they might be described as having “complex needs”. A child might have complex needs from birth, or following an illness or injury. We can provide more information on what support you can get after diagnosis, you child's medical needs, daily living with a disabled child and lifelong care for a disabled child.
