Scope
The event, which is to be held at Latton Bush Centre, in Southern Way, has been organised in the wake of changes to the law that define what schools, local authorities and health services should provide with children with special education needs and disabilities which came into effect in September.

Scope regional response worker Shelley Johnson said: “These changes will have a dramatic impact on families, and it is important for parents and carers to be fully aware of the legislation as well as the local educational provisions available to them.

“This event will provide the information they need and enable them to meet various experts, network, ask questions and attend practical workshops.”

Jane McConnell, a trained barrister and chief executive of independent parental special education advice, will be explaining the new SEND legislation.

She said: “As the mother of a young man with complex special educational needs, I know that one of the most vital things parents can do is keep themselves informed.
