We understand that life can be challenging when you have a child with SEN – we aim to make your life, as a parent, easier and will work together with you as a team. We are always on hand to share any advice and recommendations for you to help at home. That’s also included as part of the SENsational service!
We develop a network of support around you and your child, so that you can feel fully supported and understood. Whenever possible, we will also connect with the teachers, SENCos and other professionals (e.g. speech and language therapists, OTs) so that you can feel assured that your child is receiving the best possible support.
