I have been invited to attend a parent consultation on the report called 'Special Educational Needs: A mainstream Issue'

Anyone read or seen the report and have any ideas on it??

Apparently Dfes in response to the report, are developing an action plan to raise standards of provision to children with special educational needs - over a period of 10 years.

Anyone else been to a meeting regarding this?
Anyone interested in attending a meeting regarding this - Mencap are the ones who are putting this meeting together along with a group called conSENsus. There is a contact if you want to find out about meetings in your area I could pass on to you.

I am attending more in role of Downs group person than parent although they do want parents of children of all ages. They say all parents are welcome regardless of child's diagnosis or age. Being a teacher I am also interested in what is being proposed.

Thanks for that eidsvold.

A pressure group has started up here for parents of SEN children- much needed. And yes everything is a battle.

Love dd's name!

oops I just realised I slipped and posted dd's name.... no anonymity now

@eidsvold - I like it! Ds1's name begins with an A and is unusual as well. You can always ask Tech to remove it if you want....

how do I do that??

You can email them- think theres an address on the talk page or home page and they will remove it for you.
