East Riding Special Educational Needs and Disability Information, Advice and Support Service (SENDIASS)

The service is trained to provide advice based on the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Code of Practice and the Children And Families Act.

SENDIASS offers impartial, confidential information, advice and support for any type of disability or learning difficulty (diagnosis not needed) to:

  • Parents and carers of children and young people (birth to 25 years) with special educational needs or disabilities

  • Children and young people (up to 25 years) with special educational needs or disabilities (and if they choose, their parents/carers). SENDIASS will ensure that young people can participate fully in the decisions that affect their lives and encourage self advocacy

  • Professionals needing signposting and procedure information around the SEND Code of Practice. 

Anyone requesting information, advice and support, please contact SENDIASS via email, text only number or telephone, and one of the SENDIASS officers will return your contact within 2 working days.
