Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Local Offer

Support for children and young people with SEN and disabilities

I have had past experience of working with children with speech and language difficulties, as well as children with global delay, cerebral palsy and children who were deemed to be on the autistic spectrum. I have attended various courses throughout my time working with children, some targeted towards special educational needs specifically. Referrals would be made to the relevant third parties i.e. if it was a speech and language delay then I would refer to the speech and language therapist. Please ask for more details.
