DIAS offer free, impartial and confidential advice to parents and carers of children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).
We can offer advice around Education, Health and Care, with the aim of empowering you to make informed decisions for your child’s or young persons future. You may find it useful to talk to us, to advise you about the information that may be helpful to you.
Our aim is to make sure you know who to ask, where to go and what you are entitled to. We also provide training, to make sure you are confident in making the right decisions and dealing with each situation.
Our team are trained in SEN legislation, but we are not legal or financial advisors, health or care professionals. But we will signpost you to those who provide advice in these areas. We do our utmost to give advice that is current, accurate and impartial.
