Webinar: Early support and socio-economic deprivation

21 July 2021

Researchers discuss how crucial support services can be made accessible to all children with neurodevelopmental conditions.

New research highlights unequal access to support for children with neurodevelopmental conditions based on where they live.

Children with neurodevelopmental conditions often face poorer mental and physical health as well as social inequalities. Early-years support can improve a range of outcomes, but is often difficult to access. Factors such as area-level income, employment, education, health, crime, housing, services and living environment could potentially influence access to support, but this is under-researched.

In our latest webinar on Wednesday 21 July at 12pm (UK time), Suzi Sapiets, Sophie Laxton and Caitlin Moriarty from the University of Kent's Tizard Centre discuss their recent research project exploring access to different forms of support for children with neurodevelopmental conditions in areas of socio-economic deprivation.
