Who can advice and support be requested for?
Children and young people aged 2 - 19, who attend school in Northern Ireland, and have a primary diagnosis of physical disability.
What advice and support can be offered?
Each pupil's needs will be individual, however, support and advice may take the form of:
- Transition/New School Support
- Annual Review Process
- Coordination of Services between health and education
- Assistive Technology
- ICT Hardware and Software Solutions

Where will it take place?
We can answer your initial query by phone or email.
If further support is necessary we will arrange a meeting at your school. Visits to Fleming Fulton School can also be arranged to look at the use of assistive technology and the good practice in inclusive education. This level of support requires both school and parental consent.
When can we request advice and support?
At any time of the academic year. The LILAC Project is based in Fleming Fulton School.
How do we request advice and support?
- Preferably a request should come from the pupil’s school to the Lilac Project. If Parents or Health Professionals are keen to refer, they should contact the pupil’s school and ask the School Principal or SENCO to make a request on behalf of the pupil.
- An Advice and Request form can be downloaded and posted to:
