What are Special Education Needs and Disabilities (SEND)?

Universal health services

Universal health services can be used by everyone without an assessment or referral. Most children and young people with SEND will have their needs met by these services. 

Targeted health services

Health services intended to support and treat people who’s needs cannot be met through universal health services alone. Children and young people are assessed and referred to these services

Specialist health services

Specialist services support children and young people whose disability is permanent and substantial and has a negative effect on their ability to do normal daily activities.

Mental health and wellbeing

Children and young people with SEND may need to be supported by one or more of these mental health services at some time in their life.
