To use this service your child would need to be:
- Referred by your school's Special Educational Needs Co-Ordinator (SENCo),
The SENCo in the school decides with the class teacher(s) and the parents/carers which children should be referred to the service.
The child’s class teacher, the SENCo and the parent/carer fill in a referral form for the service. The referral form collects information about the student in literacy or mathematics before the specialist literacy or numeracy teacher starts an assessment and writes a report.
