Jargon Buster

Jargon is a form of language and expression used by groups of people and professionals that may be difficult for other people who are not familiar with their work or life to understand.

For example, groups of words may be shortened into acronyms, such as ASD for Autism Spectrum Disorder.

We have created a list of some of the terminology you might encounter in Surrey services for children and young people with additional needs and disabilities.
