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.
We have an independently trained Independent Supporter in place in Reading to help parents and their children and young people, entering the EHC system and during Annual Review of an EHC plan.
Independent Supporters are provided by both Reading IASS and by our local delivery partner, Adviza, which has been appointed by the Council for Disabled Children to deliver Independent Support in Reading.

Helpline open: Monday 9.30-1pm; Wednesday 10am-6pm; Friday 9.30am-1pm Term time only - Messages can be left at any time.
