Special Educational Needs Podcast

I've just come across this podcast from Contact a Family (CaF) about the meaning of Special Educational Needs (SEN) and other related terms like SENCO (Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator). It explains what to do if you are concerned that your child has SEN and what schools and the local authority can do to help and also has more information about how to request a ‘statutory assessment’ and the ‘statementing’ process, what this means, how to make sure any provision best meets your child’s needs, and what to do if you are unhappy or want to appeal against a decision.

At Littlesheep Learning we have an article on our Resources pages People You May Meet - Professionals Involved which tries to identify some of the most common professionals involved with children with special needs and their roles.

I hope you find these resources useful.
