Young people and their families can access the service at the regional office in Hull where parking is available. However, given the wide area covered by the service and the limitations many young people have in terms of transport our practitioner is also able to come directly to them in a convenient location.
Access to this service
The service has an open referral policy.  Parents, carers or young people themselves can contact the service by telephone, email, in writing, face-to-face or by completing an online enquiry form. Please see contact information for details.  
A young person can also be referred by an education, social care or health professional with their permission.

Who this service is for
The service provides information, advice and support to young people who have, or may have special educational needs or disabilities. 
It is not necessary for the young person to have a diagnosis to access the service. 
Parent and sibling involvement
It is the decision of the young person as to whether or not their parent / carer attends with them.
