Coaten SEND Services was set up by Lisa Coaten after seeing the need for an affordable alternative to law firms when needing specialist SEND advice.
Lisa has worked in the voluntary sector both locally and nationally, providing support and advice services to more than 500 parents and young people. Seeing how budget cuts and limited independent services have affected families, she decided to set out another option, maintaining high standards and a personal service at a reasonable price.
Lisa also has a son who has a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder. She knows the personal struggle parents go through to ensure their child receives the support and education they need, deserve and are legally entitled to.
This has given Lisa the drive to work with families and to understand the needs of the family as a whole, ensuring that parents, carers, young people and children all have the opportunity to have a voice.
This encompasses Coaten SEND Services' slogan:
Support. Advice. Understanding.
