Hosted by Donna Stephenson, Families Co-ordinator at Thomas Pocklington Trust and Tom Quilter from the Council for Disabled Children, it will cover:
• the responsibilities of the Local Authority to ensure a child or young person has access to the right education.
• the legal responsibilities as a parent or carer.
• how parents or carers challenge if they think a child or young person isn’t getting access to the education, support and/or services to which they are entitled.
You will hear more about the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Information Advice and Support Service (SENDIASS) which is free to parents of children with disabilities in England. SENDIASS teams can provide information about education, health and social care for children, young people and their parents.
You will also be able to ask your questions to Tom and Donna.
Registration closes at 4pm on 11 February. For the April webinar registration closes 4pm 15 April.
