Help and Support for Parents and Carers of Children with SEND

Possible Self-Isolation due to COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

These are strange and difficult times for everyone and our children with SEND may be finding current events and restrictions especially difficult to make sense of. You have been absolute stars, supporting children through this half term and I wanted you to know we are so grateful for all your support.

 

Here are some further sources of help and advice which you may find useful, and some resources to use at home with your children. Stay safe and keep well. 

 

Useful Links

The government have some guidance on their website to help children with SEND continue their education during coronavirus (COVID-19) as well as advice for parents and carers looking after children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), as part of the Guidance for parents and carers on supporting children and young people’s mental health and wellbeing during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

 

BBC Bitesize have put together a Parents Toolkit with SEND (special educational needs and disabilities) resources, activities and support to help you and your family during lockdown.

 

 

The Chatterpack website has lots of free Speech and language, OT, and many other SEND resources for families.

POINT (an information and advice service for families of children and young people with additional needs and/or disabilities) have compiled a list of useful educational, creative and activity resources that will be helpful for families to access from home.

New courses from Advance and Autism Trust

Dear parents/carers,

Here we are again in a third lock down. I just wanted to let you know I am still at the end of an email if you need anything. It has been lovely to hear from some of you and also to see some of your children in school. This has been a very confusing experience for our little ones and their families and I am sure some of you have seen a rise in anxieties. I will be using this page to keep you updated with any useful courses or support updates that I receive for you to access. Remember you are not alone, we are here ot support oyu in any way we can. 

Stay safe and I hope to see you all soon!

Support for children and families well being!
