What is Rotherham SENDIASS?

Rotherham SENDIASS stands for Special Educational Needs and Disability Information, Advice and Support Service

We can offer you impartial information, advice and support if you are:

  • a parent or carer for a child or young person up to age 25 with special educational needs or disabilities
  • a child up to age 16 who has special educational needs or disabilities

Our privacy notice

Our impartiality policy

We aim to empower you to play an active and informed part in your child’s education.

We will offer you information, advice, or support to address the issues you are experiencing. You can contact us as many times as you need. Our support should help you feel more able to work through future situations yourself.

We will help you work with schools and practitioners to improve your child's achievement

The services we offer are:

  • trained staff and volunteers offering confidential and impartial information, advice and support
  • information about education, health and social care, voluntary organisations and support groups
  • a range of information leaflets on special educational needs and disability related topics
  • training for parents and practitioners
