Specialist Teaching Team

Our Specialist Teaching Team supports the inclusion of children and young people from birth to 25 years old with low incidence/high needs, with a range of special educational needs and or disabilities (SEND).

A 'traded service' of specialist 'post 16 support' is also available for York College, Askham Bryan College, the University of York and the University of York St. Johns.

We have expertise in the following areas:

We support children, young people and their families with 'My Support Plans' and Education Health and Care Plans.

The Team works to the York Children and Young People’s Plan and is one part of a range of services from the Local Authority (LA) and other agencies - work with other agencies is very important in ensuring a co-ordinated approach to planning and delivery of services.
