Support and Guidance for SEND children

Ref: C3747689

Supporting a SEND child can be extremely stressful, but speaking to others going through similar issues and learning more about the support available can make a big difference. During this course we will look at different SEND conditions and identify indicators that your child might need SEND support. We will then look at what you can do to get help as well as ideas of how to support them yourself. Lastly we will look at an EHCP form and discuss filling them in. There will be lots of discussion in this course, which will be friendly and supportive.
