On May 13th I am attending a brilliant SEND information day, Better Together! Conference. It is being set up and run by the team at Family Action and being held at Ashlawn School in Rugby, Warwickshire. It is open to all parents/carers and professionals who would like to find out more about supporting children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) in Warwickshire.

Workshops on the day
I am going to be running two workshops on the day, in conjunction with Entrust Care Partnership.
My workshops are focusing on Getting Your Voice Heard. It is for all parents/carers who find it a challenge attending meetings with professionals, especially in medical, educational and social services settings. We will be looking at tools and techniques to help you focus and be in a positive state of mind. We will also be working on a process of how to plan well-formed and realistic outcomes and goals. This will help you achieve the best possible result for you and your child.

Other workshops you can attend on the day are:
Who’s Looking After You? Wellbeing and self care for Parents and Carers.
Meeting Your Child’s Sensory Needs.
ADHD Awareness for Parents.
ASD and Family Relationships.
Mental Health Awareness.

There are also some guest speakers on the day including British Paralympic Swimmer, Fran Williamson.

You can book a place at the Better Together! Conference and select two of the above workshops to attend on the day by visiting their Eventbrite page.

Places are limited so book quickly.

Hope to see you there.
