Our website has free resources, which you can download, to help families get the right education for children and young people with all kinds of special educational needs and/or disability (SEND). You can access these resources via our home page, which include model letters, frequently asked questions and a jargon buster .
If you cannot find answers to your questions, or you need further information, then please consider using one of our free services:
The Advice Line provides legally based information and next step advice on any educational issue that is the result of your child’s special educational needs or disability. This could include problems with schools, requesting statutory assessment, statements and Education, Health and Care Plans, annual reviews, disability discrimination and exclusion.
The Tribunal Helpline gives next step advice on appeals and disability discrimination claims to the SEND Tribunal. Our Tribunal Helpline will also be able to talk to you about our Tribunal Support Service and, if eligible, will be able to make a referral for support from a volunteer.
IPSEA is now able to offer free and independent legally based SEN advice at Face to Face sessions organised in conjunction with the Pen Green Centre for children and families at three centres in the Country.
