Inclusion Solutions is a consortium of independent special educational needs advisory teachers and counsellors within the North West of England. We provide independent advice, support and teaching for schools and parents who have children and young adults with Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND).

Inclusion Solutions is here to provide a link between schools and special educational needs advisory teachers and counsellors. All our members are highly qualified and have a wealth of experience within a specific area of SEND. We hope that inclusion solutions will be able to help you.


As a consortium of independent experts, we deliver comprehensive Specialist solutions for schools that relate to all aspects of Special Educational Needs and Disability. Our special educational needs teachers and counsellors can provide you with tailored training, advice, and direct teaching to meet the specific needs of the children and young adults in your care.


New Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) legislation places a greater emphasis on the parents’ contribution to decisions made regarding their child’s SEND provision. As Inclusion Solutions is independent from the Local Authority, while having a sound knowledge of the Local Authorities procedures, our members can provide advice and support for parents and carers. Parents and carers can contact us direct, or through their child’s school, to request our specialist involvement. Our Special Educational Needs Teachers and Counsellors can help with the initial diagnosis of SEND, advice on the content of an Education, Health and Care (EHC) plan, and the implementation of appropriate provision to meet the unique needs of the individual child

Sarah Seddon, Deputy Head at The Coppice School

“The Coppice School has benefited for some time from the specialist knowledge and expertise offered by Anne Manley in meeting the individual needs of pupils with both hearing and visual impairments. Any strategies implemented have always been backed up with a clear rationale and Anne’s flexibility means that she can maximise learning opportunities for pupils whilst supporting class staff in their own professional development.
More recently, we have gained valuable assistance from habilitation specialist, Eileen Lowe. Eileen’s extensive experience and comprehensive knowledge in promoting independence and daily living skills has already made a huge impact on the progress of individuals in areas such as feeding, self help, trailing techniques and use of the cane.”
