Oxfordshire SEND local offer

Advice for parents and carers of children with SEND

Parent guides, drop-in sessions and links for families of children with special educational needs.

Helpline for parents and carers

Do you have concerns about your child's education or would like some help in approaching school or nursery? Would you like support at a meeting or to talk through what you want to say?

SENDIASS are here to help you, whether you are wondering if your child has special educational needs, or already gets extra help at school, has an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) or is in a special school.

You can contact us Monday - Friday (9.30am - 5.30pm). If we are on the phone, please leave a message with your name, number, a good time to call and a brief overview of what you would like to discuss, especially if you have a deadline.  We aim to respond within ten working days, but during term-time, this can take longer.  

Bookable telephone appointments

Please email info@sendiass-oxfordshire.org.uk to book a 30-minute telephone appointment with one of our advisers.  Appointments are between 10am and 11.30am on the first Wednesday and third Friday of the month.
