Undertaking a SEND Review
We know of at least 9 different types of SEND review models in existence, including those funded by the DfE. However, as stated in the About section, many providers have chosen not to submit their approach. We still advocate presenting settings with a forum for choice.

Top Tip from Anita Devi:
"When choosing a SEND Review model consider not only the cost (money & time), but also the process, system & output plus sustainability."
Over the years Anita Devi has developed a simple audit tool for settings to evaluate whether current methods are fit for purpose - what to keep and change. To access contact Anita
