SEND Support

Study Skills Tuition and Autism Mentors for Secondary Schools & Colleges

Clear Links provides a specialist service to secondary schools and colleges when outside expertise is needed.

When additional support is needed, we provide pupils with Specific Learning Differences, Autism, or a Mental Health Condition the right support thanks to our expertise in tutoring and mentoring forged by 14 years as a specialist provider.

Collaborative work with the SENCO and SEND support teams within the institution is paramount to developing independent learners, and we pride ourselves on making this relationship efficient and effective.


“Clear Links have been brilliant - from booking study skills sessions to developing independence, the process has been seamless, with minimal admin for us as parents, and insightful, individually-tailored tuition. The tutor used a wide range of strategies, and my daughter is far more confident as a result. I would highly recommend them.”
