The SpLD Bases are an outreach service supporting schools. Please do not contact us directly.
If you are concerned about your child's literacy and/or numeracy progress, please contact your child's teacher in the first instance. If further information is required, we advise you to arrange an appointment with the school's Special Needs Co-ordinator.
If you feel you would like someone to support you when meeting with the school, then contact SENDIASS, an impartial information service funded by Hertfordshire County Council for parents, carers and young persons (aged 0-25 years).
The websites/email addresses below will also give you further information and resources to help you support your child.
