SEN Consulting Celebrating the individual

Trusted educational support


Mentor Education’s SEN consultants offer strategic advice and practical support to parents looking to help their child with learning differences in an educational environment.

We have an in-depth knowledge of the difficulties parents face and never underestimate the journey they are on. Our experts work closely and sensitively with the child and the parent, to help them in a way that suits their individual needs.

We offer a short cut to the best assessors, advisors, educationalists and practitioners. Our assessors are PATOSS qualified, while our tutors have extensive SEN experience and certifications.  

How we can help

Our SEN experts and advisors can help you:

  • Secure a correct diagnosis for your child
  • Navigate your way through the SEN system
  • Find the best school or learning environment for your child
  • Find a tutor who specialises in helping children with Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, DCD or ADHD.
  • Access the best possible learning support, from courses to assistive learning technology.

Find an exceptional SEN tutor

Our SEN tutors specialise in supporting children with a variety of different learning difficulties. They are highly experienced in this area and many have specific SEN teaching qualifications issued by Patoss, the professional association for teachers of students with learning difficulties, and NASEN, the National Association for Special Educational Needs.

Our tutors will work closely and sensitively with your child to help them in a way that suits their individual learning style. Subjects include literacy, maths, study skills and revision techniques, and online tuition is available as well as face-to-face sessions.

Fees for SEN specialist tutors start from £82 per hour inc. VAT.

Call us for a SEN consultation  

When you first start looking for SEN support for your child, the process can be bewildering. You don’t know how the system works, what kind of assessment you need or what the school is responsible for providing, let alone how to find the right specialists in your area.

Before you know it, you’ve spent money on unnecessary tests, wasted months going down the wrong track and your child still doesn’t have the diagnosis or support they need.

We’re here to help. Book a telephone consultation with us and one of our SEN specialists will talk you through your options. We know the system inside out, so can help you identify precisely which assessment you need and can then link you up with one of our recommended educational specialists. You can be confident that your child will be assessed by an outstanding SEN professional who is a leader in their field.

If you’re looking for a school, we can suggest the educational environments that would be a good fit for your child. We can also give you advice on resources and professional services, including occupational health practitioners, assistive training specialists and optometrists.

  • Fees for SEN telephone consultations are £144 per hour inc. VAT.
  • The fee for reading documents (e.g. educational psychology reports and dyslexia reports) prior to consultations is £84 inc. VAT.
  • Fees for research relating to SEN support (e.g. researching schools, preparing for school meetings, suggestions for educational technology) are £144 per hour inc. VAT. As an illustration, a full school search normally takes 6-9 hours.

Introducing our SEN Client Manager Yasmin Orchard

“I have significant experience of helping children with Special Educational Needs, both in my professional life and as the parent of two children with Special Educational Needs. I understand the difficult challenges and hurdles faced.

Over the years, I have used the skills I learned as a journalist and my natural tenacity many times to make sure that my children receive the support they need.

Now, at Mentor, I draw on this experience to do the same for my clients. I understand the way the system works and know all the tutors, practitioners and assessors I recommend to you. As a result, I can quickly put you in touch with specialists, schools and educational support that will suit your child and their needs.

I believe that a child should never be defined solely by their SEN. With the right support, they can learn to become as emotionally resilient, capable and confident as any other student.”

A parent recommends Mentor’s SEN services

It has been an absolute pleasure working with you, and we would have no hesitation recommending you and your services to our friends. You are professional and kind, and we always felt you were on our team.”
