Special Needs Index (SNIX)

What is the Special Needs Index?

The Special Needs Index (SNIX) is an electronic database of information about young people aged from birth to twenty five years who have a learning and/or physical disability or sensory impairment and who live in the county of Northamptonshire.

All information about disabled children is supplied voluntarily by parents and carers and no child is included on the database without parental consent.

What is the purpose of SNIX and who will have access to my information?

  • SNIX provides information about services, resources, training, early years, groups, clubs and activities etc, on a regular basis.
  • It provides statistical information to the Disabled Children's Commissioning Group as well as to planners and organisations for a variety of purposes, in particular to identify gaps in service provision. (Information provided for planning purposes will never identify individual children.)
  • The SNIX registration updates your child's existing local authority record and is completed by the Local Offer Team.
