SEND Advice Line for Lincolnshire (Ask SALL)

The SEND advice line for Lincolnshire (SALL) is an early advice service for SENDCos, SEND managers and other professionals.

It can help them to help meet the needs of children and young people with SEND, as early as possible.

SALL supports settings with an early conversation to help guide them through the graduated approach and signpost to next steps and resources to support meeting needs.

The advice line helps SENDCos, SEND managers and education professionals to talk through the main worries or difficulties for the child or young person,  including:

  • academic development and progress
  • social and emotional development
  • transition concerns
  • social and communication difficulties
  • behaviour concerns

What we do

SALL will give you and other educators time to discuss concerns at an individual or whole school level. In most cases we will contact you withing 48 hours from when your form is received.

A SALL advisor will:

  • signpost you to resources and links to support meeting a child’s needs
  • direct you to the most appropriate services for a child’s needs
  • if appropriate arrange for contact back from an experienced professional such as an educational psychologist or early years specialist teacher.
