Dear SENTALK supporters, well what a couple of interesting weeks we have had!- Last week I was fortunate enough to of been given an invitation via NAS (National Autistic Society) to the All Party Parliamentary Group in Autism.
What an event!-the topic was none other than Education and weather us-a SEN parents believed that SEN training should be given to teachers whilst studying. Currently this is not compulsory and a ‘suggested’ module.
Of of course all of our wonderful support groups, charity and parents thought heavily with definitive yes and raised other important issues in SEN training and acceptance.
The APPGA will release the outcome of the committee meeting and hopefully we will have made an impact- one things for sure, the fight for equality and fair access to education is just beginning and now the power in numbers is making an difference.
