We here at Southampton SENDIASS like to empower parents and carers to understand their rights as best we can. Therefore we try to have as many relevant fact sheets available to you as possible.

The Council for Disababled Children Information, Advice and Information Network have lots of resources available to parents and carers on their website. These include useful fact sheets, template letters, animations and good practice documents to support practitioners, children and young people with SEND and their parents. These resources are free to use and share and devised in light of the Children and Families Act 2014. Click here to go to their website.

We have developed a number of  in depth fact sheets ourselves which include links and resource specifically for Southampton families.
