The recent SEND reforms have resulted in a number of changes to Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. A number of new documents and websites have been being produced to keep both parents/carers as well as professionals informed and up to date about the latest changes and developments across all services.
There are a large number of long and sometimes confusing documents relating to the SEND reforms: This page has been developed to try and keep parents up to date with essential reading and information, most of which is in ‘easy read’ format. Below are links that have been filtered out that Parents/Carers might be interested in reading.
