The Council for Disabled Children (CDC) offers E-learning resources designed to support professionals, parents, and carers in understanding and addressing the needs of children and young people with disabilities. The CDC is part of the National Children's Bureau and aims to improve the lives of children and young people with disabilities by providing resources, guidance, and support.

The E-learning modules cover various topics, such as:

  • Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) Reforms: Understanding the legal framework and practical implementation of SEND reforms in the UK.
  • Participation and Co-production: Techniques and strategies to effectively engage disabled children and their families in decision-making processes.
  • Health and Wellbeing: Information on how to support the health and wellbeing of disabled children, including mental health considerations.
  • Education, Health and Care Plans (EHCPs): Detailed guidance on the development, implementation, and review of EHCPs.

These modules are designed to be interactive, often including case studies, quizzes, and practical examples to enhance learning. The E-learning courses aim to improve the knowledge and skills of those working with children with disabilities, ensuring they can provide better support and advocacy.
