Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND): A guide for parents and carers

The Department for Education (DfE) Guide to Special Educational Needs aims to help parents and carers understand what special educational needs are and what they can do if they are worried that their child may be having difficulties at, or before, they go to school.

It also describes what early education settings, schools and local authorities and other services can do to help their child, and what rights they and their children have.

If parents or carers have concerns or worries at any time, they should share them with their child’s teacher or head teacher or any other professional working with their child.
