This section provides information about the health and social care professionals and services that support children and young people with special educational needs or disabilities (SEND).
The community paediatrics pathway is the route for Doncaster’s children and young people to get assessed for autism, ADHD and non-global developmental delay via a General Developmental Assessment (GDA).
Our SEND groups are for Children and Young people with special educational needs and disabilities aged 8 – 25. We believe all Children and Young people should have access to all of our Youth Hubs and we pride ourselves in making sure we provide a safe, welcoming environment for all Children and Young People to be themselves, participate in fun activities and meet new friends. All of our Youth Hubs have disabled access, toilets and lifts.
Together Information Exchange (TIE) is a voluntary register of children and young people 0-19 with disabilities in Doncaster. All local authorities are required by the Children Act 1989 to hold a register of disabled children and young people. Doncaster's register is administrated by Doncaster's Families Information Service. The information you provide is kept on a secure database and supports in planning for the future across all services that support families with disabilities.
All schools should have a clear approach to identifying and responding to SEN. The benefits of early identification are widely recognised – identifying need at the earliest point and then making effective provision improves long-term outcomes for the child or young person. (Reference Chapter 6 SEND Code of Practice 2015)
