A new SEN Advice service from Contact-a-Family

Contact  a Family, the national charity that helps support parents with disabled children has launched a new SEN National Advice Service.

This service will help families whose child may have special educational needs – we will be able to provide advice and information on any aspect of their child’s education. Help is available through their helpline 0808 808 3555, or post a query on Facebook or Twitter and a SEN adviser will get back to you. Alternatively drop us an email: helpline@cafamily.org.uk.

The service is available for anyone who thinks their child may have special educational needs - whether or not they have a disability or has already been identified as having SEN.

The Contact A Family Service can advise on:

The SEN process - including:

  • Early years
  • School Action and School Action Plus
  • Individual Education Plans (IEP’s)
  • Statutory Assessment/ Statements
  • Annual Reviews
  • Transition planning and education after 16
