Department for Education easy read guide for Parents

Changes to special educational needs and disability support - easy read guide for parents.

This guide may be useful if you:

  • are a parent
  • you have a learning disability
  • you have a child who has special educational needs or disabilities.

If you do not have a learning disability, this guide can still help you to understand the changes to the support that children and young people who have special educational needs and disabilities can get.

This guide sets out the new law for those with special educational needs or a disability. Some of the new law is not easy to summarise in a few lines, and we have had to simplify it for this guide.
