Support for Special Educational Needs and Disability
Supporting our young people with SEND
For most young people, and especially those with an Education, Health and Care Plan, growing up and becoming an adult is a time of change and development. It is very important that young people with SEND can access good quality information and all the support they are entitled to, which will enable them to make the right decisions as they move into adulthood.
To help you as a family member or professional supporting a young person through their transition pathway planning, we have put together information about the support services and opportunities available in Plymouth.
We appreciate that your young person may be receiving services from a number of agencies such as health, social care, voluntary agencies or education services; it is important that these organisations are involved in planning for the future so that choices and concerns can be explored properly, always with the young person at the heart of the planning.
