What to do if you think your child has special educational needs
The first step is to explore the support available, and understand which is right for you. Answer a few questions to get some recommendations about the next steps to take, who to talk to and where you can find out about support.
Most children and young people with SEND can have their needs met in mainstream education settings (early years, schools and colleges).
- who to talk to if you are worried about your child's progress, including your child's SENCO
- what support is available from your child's education setting, local community and our teams
- what local support there is available in your community.
