Revised SEND Code of Practice

Revised SEND Code of Practice

Here is a summary of the references to commissioning AAC services and equipment within the latest revision of the SEND Code of Practice, which once approved by Parliament will come into force on 1st September 2014. Whilst this applies in the main to maintained schools, pupil referral units, academies and free schools and non-maintained special schools for children and young people aged 0 – 25 years, it will be of significant interest to local commissioners who may have responsibility for joint commissioning arrangements, including for AAC services and local AAC equipment budgets. The references have been taken from the latest Government response to consultation on the Revised SEND Code of Practice that was published on 11th June 2014.
