  • SEND Advice Clinic (February)

    • Book a 30-minute individual appointment with a worker from SENDIAS, to talk about anything related to your child’s special educational needs or disability. For example, you may want to ask about your child’s support in school or college, EHC plans, SEN transport, health and social care services, disability benefits, and much more. These sessions are for parents who have not previously accessed support from SENDIAS. Booking essential.
