SENDIASS

The Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Information Advice and Support Services offer information, advice and support for parents and carers of children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). This service is also offered directly to young people.

The service is free, impartial and confidential.

KIDS SENDIASS have developed resources providing information and advice for parents, carers, professionals and young people.

It is a legal requirement that all local authorities have a SENDIAS service and KIDS provide a number of these services across the country. Each KIDS SENDIAS service has a local page with their contact details, local information and local resources.

What is SEN funding for?
Schools must do everything they can to make sure that all children with SEN gets the support they need. Schools should use some of their budget to make provision for children who need additional help. This can take many forms such as:

  • A base to work in or have quiet time
  • Special equipment or teaching materials
  • The use of additional information technology
  • Small group work
  • Some changes to the curriculum
  • Support in the classroom
