Event Details

We would like to invite you to our Beds Talks Event on current issues and challenges in the area of special educational needs and disabilities. This will take place on March 25th, 2020, on the Bedford Campus.

 

There will be three sessions that will take us through the law, to the general picture across England, to a specific example at individual child and family level.

  • A lawyer from the Independent Parental Special Advice charity (IPSEA) will talk about SEND issues, the law, challenges, affordances and describe examples of what can happen in practice.
  • Professor Adam Boddison, CEO of the National Association for Special Educational Needs (NASEN), will discuss major issues in the field at national level as he sees them currently.
  • Martha Smith, the mother of an autistic child will talk about parents/families and the system, illustrated by the narrative of her son.

There will be time in each session for you to discuss the major issues, and for a question and answer slot between the audience and the speakers.

 

Morning tea and coffee will be provided.

 

Hot and cold lunches will be available for purchase from the outlets on campus, or you might prefer to bring your own.
