Download our Special Educational Needs easy read guides
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. Access to the right support should help people with a learning disability and their families to be more involved in making decisions about their lives and support they need.
