Dorset Education Advice Line

This service is for parents, carers and professionals who are looking for advice regarding emerging issues for a child who might have special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). Parents and carers have told us it can be difficult to understand SEND services and how best to support their child.  We know that providing information and advice early is vital to helping secure the right support for any child with emerging needs.


The Educational Psychology Team have produced some guidance and support for children and young people with specific vulnerabilities and SEND.
