SEBDA campaigns for better services for children and young people experiencing SEBD and better support for those who work with them.
Our organisation is committed to improving social inclusion and the capacity of mainstream schools to provide for children and young people. However we know from research and experience that for a small minority of pupils, social inclusion can be best pursued through education, support, care and therapy in specialist settings.
SEBDA is multi-professional. Members include teachers; education officers; behaviour support workers; psychologists; residential and other social workers; CAMHS and youth workers; those working within youth justice provision.
For a very affordable price, SEBDA membership brings the latest information and continuing support. It does this through its academic research journal, website and access to discount-priced resources and professional development events.
