Intellectual Disability

Behaviour support

Be the best you can be. 

For children and adults with Intellectual Disability, sometimes it can be hard to fit in at school, find a job, get about and make friends. MCM is recognised and respected for our work supporting children, adults and parents with intellectual disability to learn in the ways that work for them. We work alongside people learning practical skills in the right environment at the right time. We know what works and we see results: people reaching their full potential and getting on with their lives as independently as possible.
