Moving Overseas to Birmingham from Australia.

Hi Everyone!
I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction of where to start and get the right support. 
I am a single mother with a 5 year old son who has Cerebral Palsy, he is currently not in school as they start school a year late here so we are just about to transition. 
My plan is to move to Birmingham in October so he will need to be enrolled into a school, he does of course have learning difficulties and is in a wheelchair. 
He currently receives  physio, occupational and speech therapy. 
My questions are - where do I even begin to get him the right treatments he needs? Do I need to get him into a specialist straight away when we move over? I understand I can not apply for benefits until I am living in the UK. 

Thanks!!
