SEND is the system that supports children and young people with special educational needs and disability.


Special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) can affect a child or young person’s ability to learn. They can affect their:

  • behaviour or ability to socialise, for example they struggle to make friends
  • reading and writing, for example because they have dyslexia
  • ability to understand things
  • concentration levels, for example because they have ADHD
  • physical ability


If you think your child may have special educational needs, contact the SENco-ordinator, or ‘SENCO’ in your child’s school or nursery.

Contact your local council if your child isn’t in a school or nursery.

Your local Information, Advice and Support (IAS) Service can give you advice about SEND.
