The Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Support Team provides specialist support, teaching and advice to schools, settings, parents and professionals for children with low incidence needs.
We work with children and young people from birth to 19 years of age supporting their safety, development, learning, achievement and wellbeing. We promote inclusion, developing strategies for access to the curriculum and independent learning.
We aim to improve outcomes for all children and young people with low incidence needs in Devon and the South West by working in partnership with our colleagues from Health and Social Care.
