The SENDIASS/Parent Partnership Service will be delivering the following seminars:
Seminar – Sensory issues and pupils with special educational needs
Children and young people can have difficulty processing everyday sensory information. This can occur for any child, but is also recognised as a common problem for children and young people who are on the autistic spectrum. Any of the senses may be over- or under-sensitive, or both, at different times. These sensory differences can affect behaviour, and can have a profound effect on a person’s life. This session will explain what this can involve for schools and parents and how schools and parents can help.
Seminar – Helping your child prepare for adulthood
We all have worries how our children will manage as adults. This session shows how you and schools can help to do this by helping your child to develop the skills necessary from an early age. There will also be information about support to help as your child gets older.
Seminar – Using computers and information technology to help with SEND
Computers and the programmes they run can be used to help children and young people with SEND in many ways. Examples include recording information, writing and acting as a personal organiser. Schools and the local authority have access to expert advice through the Education ICT service who advise them on how best to do this. In this seminar Richard Riley from the service will explain how your son or daughter could be helped by this technology.
Seminar – How schools support pupils who do not have statements or EHCPs
Schools can support the majority of pupils with special educational needs and disabilities without the need for a Statement or Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP). This seminar will explain how they do this and the law and guidance they follow when they do so.
