Anne Ratcliff - Physical Difficulties Support Service

Staffordshire County Council’s (Physical Disability Support Service) has been decommissioned. This essential role is still, however, very much required and valued by early year’s settings, schools, colleges and the young people and their families. I worked in the PDSS role from Horton Lodge Community Special School for eleven years and so have experience in all settings. I am passionate about the service I had been providing, and it is for this reason I decided to set up independently. The aim of the service is to provide support to mainstream settings to enable inclusion of pupils with physical difficulties.
