Courses for parents and carers

FIND out about SEND

Does your child need extra support in school?
Are you confused about the help that is available?
Would you like to know more?

This free course is for parent carers of children and young people who have or may have special educational needs or disability (SEND).

We are aiming to look at SEN Support, look at the Local Offer, discuss who might be involved with your child and do some jargon busting. We will look at the Common Assessment Framework and Team Around the Family and touch on the Education, Health and Care Plan process but the main aim is to clarify school support and the graduated response. We will also look at what support is available from other agencies.

The course is for one day from 9.30am to 2.30pm at different venues across Lancashire.

Refreshments will be provided, please bring your own lunch.
