Support for young people

Some young people with Special Educational Needs may need support to make the change from childhood to adulthood. You can find out more about what help and support is available in this section of the website.

You can find out about Independent Support, a programme to support young people and their parents during the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEN&D) reforms. Somerset Supporters provide help and support to children and young people up to 18 with severe learning and physical difficulties.

People with autism have skills and strengths that, when they are given the right opportunities, can make a positive contribution to their community and the wider world. There is lots of helpful information and links to useful websites in this section.
