The SEND Code of Practice 2014 (updated January 2015) sets out four broad areas of special educational needs that include a range of difficulties and conditions. We have collated some useful resources and links for each broad area.
SNAP (Special Needs Action Panel) is a pro-active, independent forum of parent carers who all have children or young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). SNAP’s purpose is to improve the services provided for our young people, aged between 0 and 25 years.
IPSEA offers free and independent legally based information, advice and support to help get the right education for children and young people with all kinds of special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). We also provide training on the SEND legal framework to parents and carers, professionals and other organisations.
