Depending on how your child is getting on and the kind of support they need, you may need to go to different types of SEND meeting. These could take place in person, where everyone gets together to talk, or virtually using an online meeting.
Children and young people can and do go to meetings, and as they get older this is a good way for them to get involved in making decisions. If they want to, they can and should go to any of the meetings being held about them. They can tell the professionals what they think and feel and it’s a powerful and usually positive way to make sure the right support is in place.
In the sections below you can read about some of the main types of SEND meeting you might come across.
