NICCY is carrying out a Children’s Rights Based Review of Special Educational Needs (SEN) Provision in Mainstream Schools.

Educational Psychologist Survey

Parent's Survey 

Our survey has now closed and we are looking at the results along with Stranmillis University College, Belfast who are completing the survey on our behalf.

Review Background

We will gather evidence in the following areas:

  • Extent of SEN in mainstream schools;
  • Whether needs are being met;
  • Children’s and young people’s and their parents’/carers’ and school’s experiences of accessing services for SEN; and
  • Types of SEN services and supports young people have accessed or attempted to access and the impact this has had.

As the review will focus on children on the SEN register the target age range for the review will be up to 19 years old.
