Most children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND), will have their needs met through health services available to everyone (universal). There may be times when you receive additional support, through targeted health services.

The support may be provided by one or more of these services at some time in their life.

Targeted health service support is available to those with more complex needs. The support is often on a short-term basis and is provided through an assessment or referral via your GP, dentist, child’s school, health visitor, school nurse or social worker.
