Review of local area SEND inspections

The National Autistic Society (NAS) discusses the recent Ofsted and Care Quality Commission’s (CQC) inspection report of special educational needs and/or disabilities in England. The NAS highlight concerns raised in the report about serious delays in assessing autistic children’s needs and putting in place the support they need at school and in the wider community. The NAS is supporting the All Party Parliamentary Group on Autism (APPGA) with an inquiry into how effectively the education system in England works for children and young people on the autism spectrum.
