What we do

Children and young people with additional medical and/or sensory needs may struggle to access or engage with learning. We work with schools to help them better understand the needs of pupils with these additional needs and how they can be best supported, and work directly with pupils to provide them with specialist teaching and support.

Please see each individual team's page for details of what they can offer.

 

How to access our service

How to access our service

If you are a family, then to contact us in the first instance, please email cypsensorycomm@suffolk.gov.uk.

If you are concerned about your child's communication and interaction skills, we would encourage you to talk to your school in the first instance to find out what support is already being offered. In all cases we would expect schools to talk with parents and carers first about their child's additional needs and what can be done to support them before referring to us for additional support.

As soon as a child or young person is identified as having additional communication and interaction needs, schools can seek advice and guidance at one of our weekly Inclusion Support Meetings. This does not require a full referral. 

If it is felt that greater support is required then, after seeking your agreement, your child's school can make a full referral to us.
