Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

Sefton Council's Aiming High Newsletter
For families of children and young people with special needs

The National Attention Deficit Disorder Information and Support Service
Welcome to ADDISS, The National Attention Deficit Disorder Information and Support Service. We provide people-friendly information and resources about Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder to anyone who needs assistance - parents, sufferers, teachers or health professionals. Whatever you're looking for in ADHD, we'll do our best to help.

Independent Parental Special Education Advice
IPSEA's trained volunteers give free, legally based independent advice and support in England and Wales to help get the right education for children with SEN/D. You can also get help by looking at our website resources on common problems, taking action, exclusion, transport, refusal to assess and more.

The Dyslexia Trust
The Dyslexia-SpLD-Trust, or the Trust, is a collaboration of voluntary and community organisations with funding from the Department for Education to provide reliable information to parents, teachers, schools and the wider sector. It acts as the important communication channel between government, leading dyslexia organisations, parents, schools, colleges, teachers and the sector.

Autism Education Trust
The AET website provides tailored advice and resources for professionals, parents, carers and children and young people with autism. The AET manages online resources for children and young people: the Kids Zone provides younger children with information, advice and games and The Den is an interactive area for teenagers on the spectrum featuring personal experience films, ask the expert films, games and quizzes.

Aiming High for Disabled Children
Aiming High for Disabled Children is there to make sure disabled children, young people and their families have the same access to fun, fulfilling activities and life chances as those without disabilities. We provide specially tailored sessions during term-time and holidays that young people can access and specialist support when our young people reach key 'transition points', such as moving from education into employment. In order to help us keep you up-to-date on services that are useful to you, you can register with our Disabled Children's Database at The Sefton Directory. Once registered you are also guaranteed a regular copy of the Aiming High for Disabled Children newsletter.

Local Offer - Special Educational Needs and Disabilities
The Local Offer provides clear and accessible information about the provision Sefton Council expects to be available locally for our children and young people from 0 to 25 who have special educational needs and/or disability (SEND).
