Welcome to Haringey SENDIASS at Markfield

 
Parents and carers can access our range of support services to get the information and support they need so that their children can be happy and successful in school. We also work directly with children, young people and adults up to the age of 25 years old that have a Special Educational Need or Disability. As part of SENDIASS we run a monthly Family Club, training workshops and group talks on SEND topics.

Our Family Support Team can also offer specialist advice and information on issues such disability benefits, behaviour support, transition & adulthood and guidance on other support services you can access.

Support offered includes:

• Information regarding the local offer, local policy and SEN/ disability law from independently trained staff

• Advice for parent/carers, children and young people on gathering, understanding and interpreting information and applying it to their own situation

• Personal budgets

• Information on the local authority’s processes for resolving disagreements, its complaints procedures and means of redress

• Signposting children, young people and parents to alternative and additional sources of local and national information, advice and support

• Individual casework and representation where needed including support in attending meetings, contributing to assessments and reviews and participating in decisions about outcomes for the child or young person.

• Support for parents and young people in managing mediation and appeals to the SEND Tribunal 

 

Who is the service for?

Our impartial service is available to parents of children with SEND, and to young people from the age of 16 up to 25 with SEND.
