At the pinnacle of The FA Disability Talent Pathway are the England Impairment Specific Development squads. Currently, these squads have a focus on developing players under the age of 23 and cater for blind, partially sighted players, players with cerebral palsy and players with a learning disability. Involvement in an England Development squad prepares selected players for full involvement in Elite Impairment Specific squads.
