Specialist Education Services

Comprising the Cognition & Learning, Communication & Interaction, Sensory & Physical, Social, Emotional and Mental Health, Whole School Inclusion Services and the Education Access team, the Specialist Education Services are part of Suffolk County Council.

They work together to support schools and children with SEND across the whole of Suffolk in a variety of different ways, including support for children with visual and hearing impairments, dyslexia, behaviour needs, communication difficulties and others.
