Resources for families with additional needs

Bookstart is for every child
Bookstart is for every child

We provide resources for children with additional needs and for families with English as a second language.

 

In addition to the universal offer of the two packs, we also offer a wide range of additional resources that you can acquire and tailor to meet the needs of your communities.

This ‘layered approach’ ensures that special support materials and resources are available for the most vulnerable and disadvantaged families and groups, while the programmes also benefit every child and family in the country.

 

Bookstart Coordinators can log in to order additional needs packs
