Welcome to the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Information, Advice and Support Service (SENDIASS) service.
We give free and neutral advice and help to all young people who need it. We also help parents and carers of children and young people who:
- have, or might have, a special educational need (SEN) or disability
- are aged 0 to 25 years old
- live in the borough of Barnsley
You can find out more about us and what we can offer in the about SENDIASS section.
What are Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)?
A child or young person has SEN and disabilities if they have a learning difficulty. It could also be a disability that means they need special health and education support.
