What are my child’s rights? webinar three
On 15 April 2021, our ‘What are my child’s rights?’ webinar, hosted by Donna Stephenson, Families Co-ordinator at Thomas Pocklington Trust and Tom Quilter from the Council for Disabled Children, was for both professionals who work with blind and partially sighted children and young people and their families to discuss the rights they have within school.
- the SEND code of practice.
- the responsibilities of the local authority to ensure a child or young person has access to the right education.
- what support SENDIASS can provide.
It also covered the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Information Advice and Support Service (SENDIASS), a free service for children and young people with disabilities and their parents in England. SENDIASS teams can provide information about education, health and social care for children and young people.
