Find courses, clubs and events for you and your family, and short breaks and childcare too.
Learn about the education support your child is entitled to, the different types of education available and how to get help to access learning if your child can't go into school.
Learn about the financial support you can apply for yourself, and what funding is available to education providers too.
Thinking about your child's future early can help to relieve some of the worries you might have. We've got advice for how you and your child can prepare.
Find services who can help children and young people with SEND, and learn more about how you can access specialist support.
There are a lot of organisations who can support the parents, carers and families of children and young people with SEND in Hertfordshire.
