"Social care and young disabled twins."

How many people does it take to push two wheelchairs?
I am the mother of school age twins who have an un-diagnosed neurological condition. They are completely unable to walk, have a learning disability, a social communication disorder and emotional and behavioural difficulties. They need lots of opportunity to socialise, to do simple things like experience going to the shop and buying sweets but I simply cannot push two wheelchairs by myself. I have built up a good network of friends and supporters for the boys who are a huge help, however I would value the support and guidance of a good social worker. I have tried so many times and in so many ways to get the boys a social care assessment.
My aim is to get my boys as bright an independent future as possible. I simply have no idea how to get them a social care assessment, when I phone I’m told there is nothing anyone can do? All I want is a social care assessment – I would like a good social worker to help empower and enable me to do the best for my children. One has recently had an operation, the care they receive in the next few years may affect whether or not they will eventually be able to walk.
