We've worked with the Department for Education to create easy read guides for parents and children and young people with learning disabilities.

The easy read guides help explain the changes to the special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) system in England.

The changes, which came into force from September 2014, should mean that children, young people and their families get the support they need earlier, Therefore helping them to learn and be healthy and be more involved in making decisions about their lives and support they need. The changes also mean that they should be able to find information more easily and get help to prepare for their future, including getting a job, choosing where to live and getting involved in their community.
