A message from the The Council for Disabled Children ....
The Children and Families Act came into force in September 2014, heralding the biggest reforms to Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) in a generation.
At the time, our Director Dame Christine Lenehan said changes would take another generation to embed.
As we reach the Act’s fifth anniversary, we want to hear your views in our annual survey on the experiences, successes and challenges, and get your feedback on future priorities for SEND.
