Summer of SEND 2022 - Parent/Carer Resources

As part of our Summer of SEND we are releasing new resources but we also wanted to highlight other specific resources that are already available for parent/carers. 

Diagnosis Support Pack

The new diagnosis support pack pack has been co-produced with the help of parents, young people, local Parent Carer Forums, CAMHS, Education Psychology and other key partners. The guide provides resources and signposting following a diagnosis.
