Some children and young people have disabilities or special educational needs (SEND) and these differing needs mean varied levels of support are required at different times in that child’s life. As a parent or carer it might make your daily parenting duties more challenging.

In Devon, there are a range of support services so that children and young people with SEND can be educated and enjoy social opportunities alongside their peers, in their local community.
