Support for professionals

Have you got questions related to Special educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)? Are you unsure of what advice to offer a parent/ carer or young person? Do you needs some reassurance about legislation?

The Dorset SENDIASS team are experienced experts who are able to provide accurate information and advice relating to all matters of SEND, but particularly with legal rights and responsibilities.

The most direct route for contacting our Case Workers is to email: with your name, contact details and a outline of your query (please anonymise any information relating to specific cases). Staff will contact you as soon as they can.

For further information about training events that relate to Special educational Needs and Disabilities, please ‘Like’ our Facebook page which has up- to- date details

Unless there are exceptional circumstances, we do not take referrals from professionals, so if a family would like involvement from us, then please suggest that they contact us directly
