Is your child finding it difficult to cope at nursery or at school?
The Parent Partnership Service exists to give confidential, impartial help and support to parents and carers who have a child aged 0-19 who need extra help with pre-school or school education. This might be because the child or young person:
- Is disabled
- Has a learning difficulty
- Has a social, emotional or behavioural difficulty
- Finds it more difficult to learn than other children the same age
The Parent Partnership Service can help by...
- Giving information about the education system and special educational needs provision
- Listening to your views, worries and concerns
- Helping you to get things clear in your own mind and to get your voice and opinion heard
- Putting you in touch with other sources of help and information so that you can make informed choices
- Helping you to sort out the paperwork, going to meetings with you and providing support to write letters
- Providing the name of a trained volunteer for ongoing support
