SEND Teaching Assistants are key in the ensuring that students are given individualised support through multiple approaches; sensory activities, learning through play, practical experiences and more formal teaching. SEND schools aim to provide students with tools to prepare them for their adult lives, whether this is in employment, supported living or social care.
