Our resource is designed to support clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) and local authorities in England to effectively commission palliative care for children and young people aged 0–25. Produced as part of our Department for Education-funded special educational needs and disability (SEND) project, our resource also supports health and wellbeing boards to understand their role in the commissioning process.
Free online guidance to equip professionals in Local Authorities, schools, colleges and settings to deliver good practice in line with the Special Educational Needs Reforms, particularly for children and young people with literacy difficulties, specific learning difficulties and dyslexia. The guidance includes information on: Effective Practice, School Funding Reforms, Graduated Approach and the Local Offer.
Although the SEND reforms are now well embedded, this presentation still offers a useful summary for new SENCos and anyone else with an interest in the area. It particularly focuses on the graduated approach.
The Autumn edition of the CDC Digest is a special edition focusing entirely on the SEND reforms and packed full of links to resources, fact sheets, best practice and events.
This edition includes:
A-Z of SEND reforms
Update on Independent Support and the new IAS Network
Review of the new Early Support App for parents
Learning from the Pathfinder Champions
Links to latest resources and reform focused events
