The importance of collaborative practice between those who provide services to children with special educational needs is now regarded as essential and is supported strongly by the UK government. However, joint working is often difficult to implement, despite the goodwill of all involved. This paper describes a pilot study aimed at developing collaboration between a local education authority and a National Health Service (NHS) Trust. It reports on the results of the evaluation and discusses aspects of the project that facilitated collaborative working between the various parties involved.
