    There’s a lot of help out there if you are doing it yourself. It can be daunting but I found IPSEA, SOS!SEN websites and webinars, and also Families in Focus incredibly helpful for me. I had a brilliant contact at Families in Focus who walked me through the process. Also speak to other SEN mums/dads who have been through it and local online groups who have been through the experience themselves.
