During the coming weeks, we know that some schools and colleges are closing or partially closing, which will affect EHC assessments, EHCP reviews and provision in school during this time. All of our advice for schools and parents about Coronavirus and its impact on SEND is available here.
Devon Information Advice and Support (DiAS) also offer information about coronavirus, school, education and SEND.
Special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) Local Offer and vision
Every child deserves the best possible start in life and the opportunity to thrive. Some just need a little extra help or special support to achieve their potential.
Devon’s SEND Local Offer and strategy has been produced in collaboration with families and set out how we will help improve outcomes for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities and their families.
These priorities make up our SEND Local Offer, which includes the education, health and social care services and support for children and young people (0-25) with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).
We are currently working to improve our SEND Local Offer. You can read more about the SEND Transformation Project here.
For parents, professionals and settings invited to use Devon’s EHC Hub it can be accessed here
