Access to education for children with special educational needs

Access to education is made up of four specialist teams who work to support children and young people with additional education needs in Birmingham.

We work in homes and educational settings, putting children, young people and their families at the centre of everything we do.

We aim to enable participation, engagement, inclusion and equality of access.

The four areas are:

Communication and Autism

Specialist support to children and young people with an Autistic Spectrum Disorder.

Educational Psychology

Professional psychological assessment, consultation, training and support for children, families and schools.
Framework for Intervention provides an environmental approach that focuses upon change within a whole setting to manage behaviour.

Pupil and School Support

Helps children and young people with cognition and learning difficulties to progress and achieve to the best of their abilities.

Sensory Support

Enables successful educational achievement and social inclusion for children and young people with sensory impairment.
