The new, improved one stop shop for information and advice on special educational needs or disabilities is now LIVE!
If you work with children or young people with special educational needs or a disability (SEND), the Local Offer is for you and the family. Visit the new site at www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/localoffer.
There are over 25,500 young people in Hertfordshire with a special need or disability – and only one fifth of those children qualify and are registered for, additional support by means of an educational health and care plan (EHC) because of an exceptional need. As a professional, you will know they don’t need to have an EHC plan to receive support.
Professionals and families can find information and advice online whether it is where to find a support group, information about how to apply for an assessment, what the pathway to adulthood entails or simply where to find more detail on a child’s condition – visit the Local Offer.
If you can’t find what you’re looking for, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. The website is work in progress and we value your feedback to make sure it grows to be the key ‘one stop shop’ for SEND information.
