This guide has been prepared for parents of children with special educational needs (SEN) and/or disabled children living in Wales. It only applies to Wales and we have written separate guidance for England.
Please be aware that changes brought in by the SEN reform process in Wales will come into force from September 2020. We will be producing an updated guide explaining the new system before it is introduced. In the meantime this guide remains accurate.
