Support for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

Independent Supporters

The independent support is free and is to provide specialist individual support to those involved in an Education, Health and Care (EHC) Needs Assessment. Trained Independent Supporters can explain each stage of the process and help your involvement.

Independent Support in North Yorkshire is jointly provided by the SEND Information, Advice and Support Service (SENDIASS), which will continue to offer information and support to families of students with SEND up to the age of 25 yrs.
