The CCG has developed the Warwickshire Local Offer with partners to support children and young people with Special Educational Needs or who are Disabled (SEND).
What is the SEND local offer?
Every nursery and school has a special educational needs coordinator (SENCO). You can also talk to them. They are teachers who are trained to identify children with special educational needs and make sure they get all the help they need.
The help your child will get may include:
- A special learning programme
- Extra help from a teacher or assistant – including help from a teacher who specialises in your child’s condition
- Working in a smaller group
- Help to take part in class activities
- Help to communicate with other children
- A referral to the educational psychology service.
Your child’s nursery, school, or college may create a SEND support plan. Many children and young people will get the help they need this way. Find out more about a SEND support plan through the links below.
Education, health and care (EHC) plan
An EHC plan may be an option if you need extra help.
Parents, teachers, doctors, health visitors, family friends and 16 to 25-year-olds themselves can all ask for an assessment.
