Help for parents or carers of children with SEND
There is local support for parents and carers of children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND):
The Buckinghamshire SENDIAS service provides free, confidential, impartial information, advice and support on all matters relating to special educational needs and disability for children and young people aged 0 to 25 and their parents/carers.
Carers Bucks can provide help and advice on caring for children with SEND.
Families and Carers Together in Buckinghamshire (FACT Bucks) is a group of parents and professionals who meet to discuss issues that affect children and young people with SEND in Buckinghamshire.
Designated Clinical Officer
The Designated Clinical Officer (DCO) makes sure health services and the council work together effectively. You can find out more about the DCO role on our directory.
There are also local courses available where you can learn more about SEND conditions. You may have to pay for some of these courses.
