Helping children cope with stress during the outbreak:
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:
