WEBINAR: SEND Code of Practice: Impact and Advocacy

WEBINAR: SEND Code of Practice: Impact and Advocacy

Date: 20th September 2018

Time: 7.30pm – 8.30pm

The SEND reforms have been in place for 4 years, with the 2015 SEND Code of Practice providing both statutory and non-statutory guidance to Local Authorities and schools regarding provision for children with SEN in schools. This webinar will examine the changes that the 2015 Code has brought about, and the impact that these changes have had on children, parents and schools. Linked to the notion of change, the webinar will consider how parents and SENCos are increasingly needing to advocate for children with SEN, specifically dyslexia, and the strategies they utilise to do this.

Helen trained as a primary school teacher, latterly becoming a SENCo, assistant head teacher and Local Authority Specialist SEN advisor.
