Merton Special Educational Needs Information and Advice and Support Service

Impartial advice and guidance to parent/carers and young people with regard to the identification of special educational needs and the requirement for multi-agency support and intervention in the form of an Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP)

MIASS was formerly known as Merton Parent Partnership Service.

Parents and young people should first contact their school's SENCo, learning support advisor, class teacher and other professionals who know the child/young person. Merton’s SEN Local Offer also has a large number of useful guidance documents and services listed.

MIASS is aimed at families who have explored these options but require some additional direct and specialist help and advice.
