Description

What will you learn?

When things go wrong in school, it is often the case that the pupil has Special Educational Needs and Disabilities which has an impact on their physical & mental health and their behaviour. Too often this leads to school exclusion or the child no longer being able to attend so what are your options and what can you do?

Join Sarah-Jane Critchley (Mother of an autistic girl, Programme Manager of the Autism Education Trust and Author of ‘A Different Joy: The Parents’ Guide to Living Better with autism, Dyslexia, ADHD and more…) to hear about the latest research and learn from her experience as a parent as well as a professional working in the sector.
