Extra help for young people with Special Educational Needs
Young people with Special Educational Needs may need extra help to make decisions about education, jobs and training.
Careers advisers provide help and support for young people with Special Educational Needs from the age of 13
(Year 9), while working closely with parents/carers, teachers, social workers and other professionals.
If you’re a parent/carer, you have an important role in helping your son or daughter explore the choices available
to them, especially after the age of 16 (Year 11).
My Future on careerswales.com has easy to read information and games to help young people with Special Educational Needs plan their future.
Look at Exploring your options to find out more about the choices available for young people after Year 11.
If your son or daughter is thinking of going to college read our article: Is change a bad thing?
How will I decide? lists the things young people need to think about when making plans about their future.
Help with getting a job helps young people think about work and how they can get a job.
Our article about supported work answers questions about the extra help young people can get to find and keep a job.
