More About The Organisation

Organisation Description

About the Organisation

Bibic offers practical help to families caring for children with conditions such as autism, cerebral palsy, Downs syndrome, developmental delay, traumatic brain injury and specific learning difficulties such as ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), dyslexia and dispraxia. All programmes are devised for the family to continue at home.

We will support children in all areas of their development, which comprise vision, gross motor skills (larger movements like crawling), fine motor skills (smaller movements like self- feeding), language comprehension (understanding what people are saying), expressive language (explaining oneself), social skills, independence (self-care skills), cognitive skills (the skills that enable us to think and learn), sensory processing (responding to messages from our senses), memory and auditory processing (understanding what we hear) and academic skills (reading and writing).

In addition we provide help and support to families, enabling them to better understand their child's condition which, in turn, will enable them to cope better with the impact on family life. bibic is a charity that is dedicated to helping children reach their full potential. Over 43 years we have developed and honed our methods to be able to offer the quality service we have today.
