SEND is Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.
If you don’t learn in the same way, or at the same speed as other people, you might have SEN.

Disabilities can be physical, like not being able to walk. They can be sensory, like having a hearing or sight impairment. Some disabilities are invisible, like epilepsy, autism, cystic fibrosis, or mental health issues.

Some people have both SEN and D (Special Educational Needs and a Disability). Whichever, you may need extra help to get on with your life. That could be support in the classroom, at college, or starting work. It might be using a wheelchair to get around, having a BSL interpreter, or having a large screen when using a computer.
