SENDIASS TELFORD LEAFLET
Accessing our service
We support parents and carers of children with a special educational need up to the age of 25. Once a young person reaches 16 it is a legal requirement that they become directly involved in making decisions themselves. Some young people still prefer to have close parent or carer support, some wish to be more independent. We'll have a chat about this and decide which way is best for you. If you're 16 or over, why not take look at all the information in our Young Persons Zone
