Requesting Advice

Virtual Consultation Form - Early Years SEND Advisors 

We are pleased to offer Early Years Settings SEND Consultations. These give practitioners the opportunity to seek advice from an EY SEND Advisor on SEND related queries. This may be a general conversation about SEND or a ‘no names’ conversation about specific children. 

It will be important to have as much relevant information available as possible to get the best out of the consultation and therefore you may find the  Telephone Consultation Information Sheet useful to gather information ready for your discussions and to record advice and actions given.

To request a telephone consultation please complete the form below. An Early Years SEND Advisor will then try to arrange a phone or Teams appointment at a mutually convenient time.
