SEND Covid Resources

We have created this resources web page to help the families of SEND children we support during this difficult time. If you are a parent of a SEND child living in Central Bedfordshire and are struggling to cope, please contact us to see how we can help.

The global pandemic has led to many changes in the way we live our daily lives. These changes have been difficult for many of us, especially for children living with SEND. At the best of times, parents may not know information about the condition, where to access further support or what to do. Societal changes due to the spread of COVID – 19 have added to these issues. This is especially true for children with autism and ADHD.

The following links are useful resources for these parents during this difficult time.
