Special Educational Needs and Disability, Information and Advice Service (SENDIASS)
SENDIASS provides a free, impartial and confidential service to parents and carers of children with Special Educational Needs or Disabilities (SEND) aged 0 – 25. We also support children and young people with SEND.
We offer information, advice and support to families with a child/ren and young people who have SEND on a range of education issues, including health and social care issues.
We offer support in a variety of ways on a range of issues that include:
- listen to your views
- explain your rights and responsibilities
- give impartial information and advice
- try to ensure that your voice is heard and that you are involved in decisions that affect you
- signpost you to other sources of information, advice and support
We also have a role in providing training and informing local policy and practice.

Parents, children and young people can self-refer to our service via the phone, email or by using this referral form. Please see contact section for details.
The booklets below are a series of information resources for parents and carers in North Lincolnshire. They are intended to offer an introduction to parts of the Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Code of Practice and to complement the Department for Education (DfE) Parents’ Guide.
Each booklet includes references to other sources of information, advice and support as well a link to a brief online questionnaire.
