Event description

Description

Bell House and Connections in Mind Foundation are collaborating over the year to co-host a series of events focused on how adults can support children and young people to flourish.

Stephanie Camilleri, lawyer and Advocate, ADHD Coach, founder of ADHD Advocate and mother to a child with SEND (Special Education needs and Disabilities) will be hosting the talk on Navigating the SEND legal framework to secure the best possible educational and other outcomes for your children/young people including EHCP.

Stephanie's talk will review the educational system, children and young people’s entitlements, including the legal understanding of out of borough schools. There will be a strong emphasis on EHCP and the journey of the process. The focus will be on the procedure, the legal aspects, the Local authority and schools. It will therefore be relevant to those just thinking about an EHCP, or just starting, in the middle or drawing to the end, facing tribunal, transitioning schools or from statement to EHCP or other.

Stephanie will discuss the legal frameworks incorporating the many different children and young people with disabilities legislation, including whether a child or young person is entitled to request an EHCP. She will look at the complexities of the local authorities, how to navigate the system and what services are available. She will offer advice on where to start with a diagnosis, if you need to see the GP and who does what, for example, Educational Psychologists, Therapists, Psychiatrists and CAMHS; the different assessments and which ones are beneficial and required for schools and EHCP. Plus she will look at the options if the school is not responding, or refusing or excluding the child or young person, and what to do if the child is being isolated and receiving minimal or the incorrect support.

Stephanie’s talk is for parents and professionals. At the end of the talk there will be time for Q&A, followed by drinks in the foyer. Stephanie and The Connections in Mind Foundation team, who have extensive knowledge of SEND and ECHP's will be on hand to speak in more detail.
