Somerset County Council’s Sensory, Physical and Occupational Therapy (SPOT) services have created a suite of eight new leaflets in response to requests for information from parents, carers and special educational needs coordinators (SENCos).

SPOT is made up of four specialist teams:

  • Hearing Support Team
  • Vision Support Team
  • Physical Impairment and Medical Support Team (PIMS)
  • Occupational Therapy.

The SPOT service aims to support a child and young person’s independence in their educational setting and at home.

The leaflets can all be found on Somerset’s Local Offer website using the following links:

If you have any questions about the leaflets, please email
