SEND professionals are invited to attend the Special Education Needs Conference in Manchester on November 14th.
The conference at the University of Salford will focus on the key challenges set out by the Education Committee’s recent inquiry into the support for children and young people with SEND.
Speakers will examine whether the Government’s stated ambitions for simpler, improved and consistent help for youngsters with SEND have been met. Presentations will provide practical solutions and examples of best practice from across the age range of provisions.
Alongside this inquiry, councils are set to benefit from a £50million funding boost to create additional school places and state-of-the-art facilities for children with SEND.
