SEN Specialist Support (SENSS)

Providing professional reassurance and expert advice that you can trust

Get expert advice and specialist support from our team of advisory teachers and SEN specialist practitioners. We work with children with visual and/or hearing impairment, physical disabilities and complex medical needs. Our aim is to reduce the barriers that prevent children with disabilities from reaching their potential. We will work with you to make sure that children from diagnosis to age 19 are fully included in school, family life and enjoy an active social life. We provide direct teaching, staff training, specialist equipment and model and share good practice.

Service Features

We offer a cost-effective solution to meet the very specialist needs of children with sensory and/or physical disabilities. In addition to our centrally-funded statutory services, we can tailor support for your pupils to enable them to maximise their potential.

  • We assess, supply, maintain and monitor specialist equipment that can assist your pupils to achieve their potential and be fully included in all aspects of the life of your school
  • The advisory teachers provide advice and support to parents, schools and the children themselves, and provide a link between education services and those of health, social care, the voluntary sector, etc
  • The advisory teachers also guide and monitor the work of the SEN specialist practitioners who provide on-going intensive support to those children who need more specialist interventions than schools may have the expertise to provide
  • For some children, the teachers can provide time-limited, specific interventions
