Information, Advice and Support (SENDIASS)

Jargon Buster

The Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) documents use a lot of Abbreviations and Acronyms which are confusing.  Although most publications and documents do try to use the full wording, it is not always possible.  To help with that we have put a Jargon Buster on which will support you with the use of Acronyms for the majority of documents in the Local Offer.
