DiAS supports children and young people with information about special educational needs.
We have five factsheets designed for young people with special educational needs, including two that are Easy Read. Easy Read means the information is written in clear English alongside pictures. The two factsheets are about our service and how we keep information private (confidentiality):
The other factsheets are short with clear English. The EHC plan factsheets can be used by young people or by anyone who would rather have something short and sweet!
- DiAS explained for young people
- Education, Health and Care plans explained for young people
- Education, Health and Care needs assessments explained for young people
You can also contact us directly for copies of any of our factsheets and resources.
