Government advice for parents (19/3/2020)

We wanted to let you know about a new event from the Virtual SEND Conference, and this one has been created for parents, as we feel there is limited information for parents of children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.

Parent Talks are 12 pre-recorded high-value talks from 10 presenters. We feel the talks will not only benefit parents but will help schools, LAs, and support groups. You will see the advice and support that is given to parents, you will also be able to pass the same advice and support to parents who are unable to access the talks. You can find more information by going to:

The benefits are the same as previous conferences:

Access anytime

  • Watch from the comfort of your own home
  • Pause the talk and come back to it when it is convenient
  • Access when and where you want
  • No need to travel

Ease of viewing

  • Each session is a stand-alone talk so that you can watch one or two at a time, you do not need to watch them all together
  • The sessions will be released in 2 parts, so you are not overloaded with information

Great value

  • One payment of £10 gives you access to all 12 presentations
  • Early Bird discount code when you register and purchase before the end of May
  • Access to the accompanying slides and tools for each talk at no extra cost
  • Come back and watch the videos as many times are you like

If you would like me to send you more information on the talks, please register your interest here:
