Child Disability Service

The service was established to ensure social work services are made available to disabled children and their families in West Lothian. The team strives to promote social inclusion and to maximise the potential of individual children with an emphasis on providing, as far as possible, services in local communities. The service undertakes assessments using the Self Directed Support framework.

The CDS supports children and young people between birth and 16 years who live in West Lothian and have a significant or complex disability. CDS are also a practice team undertaking statutory social work services, however the child's disability should be the main reason for contact with our service. ​​This includes;

  • learning disability
  • physical disability
  • motor impairment
  • hearing impairment
  • visual impairment
  • language and communication disorder
  • autism spectrum disorder
