We have today (8 June 2017) published a new report: The Future of the Sector. This document is the result of research, surveys, seminars and events with specialist SI service and schools, SEND commissioners, parents and VCS colleagues. 

With the changes occuring to local authority funding and commissioning, the higher expectations on schools and teachers to address the need of children with SEND, the role of specialist support teachers and services going into the future cannot be taken for granted. The Future role of SI support services report examines the key changes in the organisation of local authority commissioning, legislation policy and practice to help chart what services should be doing in the future to ensure they stay relevant to the changing environment. Crucially it looks at what heads of services think about the future of SI services and the role of the professional qualification within this. The report concludes with practical recommendations for commissioners, services and Government on next steps to ensure that we have thriving and relevant sensory support services which can ensure that the needs of children and families are supported and outcomes improved.
