Nov 22, Harborough Mail: Website launched to help children and young people with special educational needs or disabilities in Leicestershire

SE England

A new one-stop shop website has been launched to help children and young people with special educational needs or disabilities access information and support in Leicestershire.

The website has been developed so 0-25 year-olds and their families can find out more about education, health and social care - all in one place.

Working alongside Leicestershire County Council, which has designed and developed the new website, Leicestershire's Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Information Advice and Support Service (SENDIASS) has brought together information and resources to expand the reach of the service….

Councillor Deborah Taylor, Leicestershire County Council cabinet member for children and families, said: “It is vital that we provide our children and young people with SEND and their families with information and advice that is clear, accessible, impartial and confidential.

SENDIASS Leicestershire enable families and individuals to understand the laws around SEND so they can make informed choices.

“This independent website is a single point of access that lays out which services are available, who they are for and what they do, amongst other useful information and contacts.

“We hope the site increases service reach and enables more families to get the advice and support they need.”

Hannah Patani, SENDIASS team manager at SENDIASS, said: “We are really excited to launch our new website, SENDIASS Leicestershire. This will enable children, young people, parents and carers to access the information they need at the time they need it about special educational needs, disabilities, their rights and the law.
