A child or young person has special educational needs and disabilities if they have a learning difficulty and/or disability that means they need special health and education support, we shorten this to SEND. The Clinical Commissioning Group has specific responsibilities to support the identification and to meet the health needs of children and young people with SEND and this includes ensuring that there are health contributions to the Education Health and Care needs assessment process and the commissioning of specialist health services.
