Rompa and Winslow will be attending the ‘Future of Special Needs & Disabilities Conference’ at the University of Salford tomorrow the 4th February 2016.
Children with a special educational need or disability (SEND) make up a significant proportion of the UK’s education system. The Department for Education found that in England alone almost 20% were categorised as SEND. Those who work with an individual who has a SEND have recently seen dramatic changes in their day to day work due to the introduction of the Children and Families Act 2014. The act replaced SEN statements with more all-encompassing Education, Health and Care (EHC) plans and introduced a new code of practice that all authorities working with SEND individuals are bound by. There is further reform on the horizon, with a review currently taking place on reforming how SEND students are assessed in examinations and the best methods of monitoring SEND educational providers.
Bringing together representatives from across education, health, local and central government, delegates attending The Future of Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Conference will benefit from a review of progress on SEND from an array of different viewpoints, and explore the impact of the Children and Families Act on services. It will also provide an opportunity to learn from case studies on initial outcomes and strategies for embedding effective practice to ensure successful SEND provision in the future.
