How we can help

SENDsuccess supports mainstream schools and parents to ensure the best possible chances of success in mainstream schools for  children and young people with:

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
  • Cognitive and Learning Difficulties
  • Hearing Impairments
  • Visual Impairments

Getting extra help for your child

Check out the Resources page, for a growing library on information and tips on how to help your child in his or her mainstream school.

If your child is already at mainstream school

First have a look at the Special Educational Needs Information Report that it must place on its Web site.

This sets out everything that the school does for children with special needs and who you should speak to. It’s usually a good idea to speak to your child’s class teacher first and /or the school’s  Special Needs coordinator (known as the SENco).

In most cases the school will work with you and call us in, if they need extra support.

However, if you want you can make a referral to us directly using our parents and carers referral form.

If you have a pre-school child and you are worried about hearing loss or visual impairment

 you should have your child’s hearing or vision checked first by a healthcare professional. Once you have a report, you can use the same form.
