The Special Educational Needs Advice Centre(SENAC) is a charity (XR73658) providing free, independent advice, information and advocacy to parents/carers of children and young people with special needs and learning difficulties. SENAC offers specialist advice on the special needs education system in Northern Ireland. The service includes a confidential advice-line and an individual advocacy service. As an advocacy service we work to get appropriate educational provision for the children and we support parents through the complexities and legalities of the SEN statutory framework. We can help with understanding the system, IEPs, annual reviews, transition to secondary school and where suitable attend meetings and assist in developing a plan that will address the child's specific educational needs.
