Take a look at the new Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) newsletter called ‘Branches’.
Some children with SEND have a specific diagnosis, eg. Cerebral palsy, ADHD, Down’s syndrome, Autism; however many children requiring SEN support will not have any formal diagnosis. There are two levels of support available in schools to children who need it – SEN Support or an EHCP. EHCP stands for Education, Health & Care Plan and these are used for children who need greater levels of support.
