Special Educational Needs and Disability Information and Advice Support Service (SENDIASS)
We offer free, impartial information, advice and support to families of children and young people 0-25yrs who have
Special Educational Needs or Disabilities (SEND).
We encourage and develop partnerships between children, young people, parents, schools, the Council and all other partners who are involved in identifying, assessing and meeting the special educational needs of children and young people.
What we offer
What help you can get and how long you can receive help for is different for each individual and we tailor any support according to your child’s specific needs which might include face-to-face meetings, contact by telephone and/or email.
