On 9 March, the Department published "Support and aspiration: A new approach to special educational needs and disability". This Green Paper has been informed by a call for views, which received over 1,800 responses, 40% of which came from parents of disabled children and children with SEN.

In developing the Green Paper the Department has also heard from a range of professionals from health, education, social care and other areas, representative bodies, the voluntary and community sector, and children and young people and their families.

The Green Paper is now out for consultation until 30 June.
