Reading Information, Advice & Support Service for SEND (Reading IASS)- service was formerly called the Parent Partnership Service. It offers free confidential and impartial advice and support to Reading parents and carers who have children (up to the age of 25) with special educational needs or disability. We are moving towards offering support to older children and young people. The service also offers all parents and carers (whether the child has special educational needs/disability or not) advice and support with secondary transfer. This service operates term time only.
Reading IASS for SEND is able to provide information, advice and support to parents/carers of children with SEND and young people with SEND, specifically in relation to the EHC Needs Assessment and the development of an EHC Plan, ensuring that parents/carers and their children understand the assessment and are able to participate fully. We can also support during an Annual Review of the EHC Plan.

Helpline open: Monday 9.30-2.30pm; Wednesday 9.30am-2.30pm; Friday 9.30am-2.30pm Term time only - Messages can be left at any time.
