Supporting families of disabled children and children with Special Educational Needs (SEN)
We aim to empower parents* and families of disabled children** and children with SEN to be confident to take an active and informed role in their child’s education and development. We provide a comprehensive, accessible and flexible range of services that includes free confidential, impartial advice and support. For further information view our leaflet on Parent Support.
It is our statutory duty to support schools in working with parents and increasing parental confidence in SEN. In addition, the Service has a duty to ensure parent participation in their own child’s development and, in the development of services.
Parent Partnership Services must operate at arm’s length and every Local Authority must provide a Service for parents of disabled children and children with Special Educational Needs (SEN). The Service is overseen by a Steering Group and at least half the members must be parents.
