The experience of transitions for children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Report 2023
In 2022 the Learning Disability and Autism Programme NHS England, funded the Southwest region of Parent Carer Forums to undertake a project to understand the transition experiences of children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). (See Appendix b) The project collected experiences of 225 individual parent carers across the Southwest and the collective feedback from the parent carer forums across the region. The research found variability within the experiences and identified 5 key themes which impacted on the transition process.

Following a recent themed meeting, where the high number of children and young people with SEND missing education was raised with the Local Authority, the Director of Education requested a fact-finding exercise by DPCC and Dorset SENDIAS Service to learn more about families’ experiences where children and young people are out of education or are only accessing learning part-time.
