SEND resources in KL

Sometimes trying to find a specialist is like finding a needle in a haystack. That’s why we have put together this list, compiled from the recommendations of parents of children with special educational needs and disability (SEND), from other experts and different projects that we know about that deal with inclusion of SEND children and teenagers of different severities and abilities in KL.

You can listen to us talk about SEND in KL more in this episode of Family Time on BFM.
