Using flashcards to get help for a SEND child

Welcome to SEN NAV

Navigating the education, NHS and social care system can be difficult for parents of children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.

The terminology used to talk about SEND is hard to understand, so finding the right words to describe the exact needs of your child or put a written case forward to a school, local authority or doctor can be really difficult.

Thankfully, SEN NAV is here to help with a range of unique visual resources designed specifically to make it easier for you to identify and explain the needs of your SEND child, in plain-English.

All of the resources have been created by a SEND training consultant, who is also a parent to a child with Special Needs, following her experience of seeing many parents struggle with securing the right support for their child.

Find out more about Olga’s story here.
