Learning Disabilities, Autism and Internet Safety

November 27, 2012

Cerebra are a charity who have been set up to improve the lives of children living with brain related conditions. They do this by providing help, guidance and conducting research.

They have produced a very helpful guide and a seperate infographic poster (shown below) to support Parents / Carers and Professionals in increasing awareness of being safe online for children. Link for both of the pdfs of the poster and guidance here

A new guide to help parents of children with learning disabilities and autism is being launched today. The guide, a collaboration between charities Cerebra, Mencap and Ambitious about Autism, aims to help parents limit the risk of their child having negative experiences online and understand what action can be taken if they do.  It also suggests resources that will help children get the most out of the internet at home and in the community.

The Highland E-Safety Group are very happy to promote this resource to you and the work of Cerebra.
