SENDIASS sessions for parents and carers

Suffolk SENDIASS provides impartial and confidential information, advice and support to children and young people with SEND, and their parents and carers.

Preparing for the transition to primary school

Preparing for Transition to Primary School Webinar (opens PDF flyer)

Booking is open for our online session Preparing for Transition to Primary School.  Parents and carers helped coproduce this session which will be supported by a member of the Early Years and Childcare team. We will explore what kind of information is helpful to find out from and share with school, ideas to help prepare for the start of term and considerations for children with SEND.

Anyone who registers will have access to a pre-recording of the session to watch on demand and linked resources.

Parent and carer coproduction sessions on information regarding mental capacity

Parent and carer coproduction sessions on information regarding mental capacity (opens pdf)

The Suffolk Parent Carer Forum have shared with us that parents and carers would like to have more information about mental capacity regarding decisions for young people with SEND.  We want the training and information we put together to be coproduced with families, so that it matches what you want to find out and is in a form which is easiest for you to access.

We are therefore offering three coproduction sessions (two online and one face-to-face) so you can tell us what will build your understanding. You are welcome to join for a short while to share your thoughts, or you can stay for the whole session. Practitioners who work with families are welcome too.
