The young person you will be supporting has complex health needs and is fully ventilated via a tracheostomy. The young person is happy, communicative and generally independent in the classroom environment. They require some supervision throughout the school day to maintain their clinical stability and to ensure their health, safety and wellbeing. In addition, the young person requires support with their learning and socialisation. The young person is able to walk independently for short distances; however, for longer distances they use an electric wheelchair independently.
