  • Practical information, including behaviour management, toileting, sleep, eating, sibling support, sign language and emotions & anxiety.

The library can be accessed during sessions or by appointment if you need help from an adviser.  Resources can be reserved via the helpline for collection during open hours, or a postal service is available if necessary.  Our range of information sheets can also be emailed to you.

Items can be borrowed on a four week loan period. There is a secure post box outside our building for returning books when our centre is closed.

Cost: Free to registered Centre users
