Reading Information, Advice & Support Service for SEND (Reading IASS) offers free confidential and impartial information, advice and support about education, health and social care to Reading parents and carers who have children (up to the age of 25) with special educational needs or disability. We also support children and young people in their own right.
Helpline open during term time: Monday 9.30-2.30pm; Wednesday 9.30am-2.30pm; Friday 9.30am-2.30pm but you can leave a message at any time. During school holidays we cover the service on a rota, without fixed helpline hours. At all times of the year calls are returned within two working days.
