About us

A free and confidential service offering impartial information, advice and support on issues relating to a child's or young person’s special educational needs or disability

Support4SEND staff have moved to SENDIASS where they will continue to work with parent carers, and with children and young people from 0 to 25, in Hampshire.

What is SEND

The term SEND (Special Educational Needs or Disabilities) is a broad description for anyone who needs additional help to progress and achieve in education.

Children and young people might need extra help because they have: 

  • a medical condition or health needs
  • a learning difficulty like dyslexia or dyspraxia
  • difficulties with communication
  • difficulties with social interactions 
  • a physical disability
  • behavioural difficulties and frustrations

You do not have to have a diagnosis. The service works with anyone who needs additional help.
