APTCOO’s vision is to create a single point of contact and one stop resource centre for children and young adults with SEN or a disability and their families where they can feel safe, improve their health, education and wellbeing, develop new skills and have fun within an all inclusive ‘Community Hub’ setting.
APTCOO embraces the importance and power of playful learning enabling children, young people and adults to try things out without fear of failure.
APTCOO can be accessed by self referral via the phone, email or drop in or via a GP, paediatric consultant or other professional. APTCOO provides facilities which offer an equal opportunity for positive play and educational development for children and young people of all abilities aged 0 to 25 within a safe and stimulating environment.
APTCOO provides a friendly and accessible base for local parent/carer groups to share and learn from each other’s experiences. Working in partnership with statutory, private and other voluntary organisations APTCOO integrate their services to be responsive to the ongoing needs of the families they support in their chosen future pathways towards independent living.
