Who are we?
Birth to five is a key time in a child's physical, emotional and social growth and development. Different children will develop skills at different times. Warwickshire midwives, health visitors and community GPs help and support families through these developmental ages and stages checks.
Warwickshire's SEND local offer
Warwickshire's SEND local offer brings together information about the local services and support available across education, health and social care for families with children and young people aged 0-25, who have special education needs and/or disabilities.
SEND Information, Advice and Support services (SENDIAS)
Warwickshire SENDIAS supports disabled children and young people, and those with SEN from birth to 25, and their parents.
The Integrated Disability Service (IDS)
This specialist education service works in partnership with families and other professionals to provide a range of services to support children with SEND at home, in early years settings and schools.

- Birth to 3 home learning and portage
- SEND childcare for children accessing childcare, including childminders
- Specialist teachers for children accessing nursery and transitioning into school
- Warwickshire Preschool Autism Service, a partnership with colleagues in health, who assess children considering a diagnosis of autism.
