We may not be able to answer all your questions straight away, but we will do our best to find the answers for you.
You can also visit the ‘Coronavirus and additional support for learning‘ section of our website for the latest updates on how the changes in law during the outbreak affect the education of children and young people with additional support needs.
We are only able to respond to enquiries that are about the education of children with additional support needs. For general information or advice about coronavirus, the NHS Inform and Scottish Government websites are the most up to date and important places to look.
