Identifying and assessing Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

Concerns about learning or other difficulties and additional needs may become apparent from a very early age or at any point in a child or young person’s life.

Medical needs may be identified from birth and picked up by hospital professionals while other developmental concerns may become apparent to parents or carers who then approach their GP (doctor), Health Visitor or educational setting for help.

After discussion with parents or carers about any concerns,  a referral for assessment may be made by those concerned to a specific relevant professional or for a multi – disciplinary assessment.

For much more detail about this please see this Advice Note.
