The SEND Foundation Course (3 part course)
What is the event?
Has your child been recently identified as having additional needs? Do you find the systems and support for special educational needs confusing? Would you benefit from a broad overview of how it all works?
This three-part course has been designed to provide an introduction on all the key issues parents/carers will encounter as your children grow and develop. It aims to empower parents of children undergoing or who have recently undergone diagnosis but is helpful to any parents who feel they need an overview of the following subjects and issues:
- Coming to terms with and understanding your child’s diagnosis/possible diagnosis
- Where to go for information and advice
- Handling stress and building resilience
- Gaining support from other parent-carer
- Accessing benefits and financial support
- Getting support for your child at school
- Accessing support through health & social care
- Accessing other key services and opportunities in West Sussex.
