The Special Educational Needs and Disability Information, Advice and Support Service (SEND IASS) is holding 2 free online webinars next month to help support parents and carers of local young people.
Newport-based SEND IASS provides free, confidential and impartial advice, information and support on all matters relating to SEN and disabilities including social care and health issues.
The first webinar is to be held on Friday 6th November between 10:30 and 11:30 and will feature Douglas Silas, an eminent solicitor who specialises exclusively in SEN. He will not only give a SEN overview but will also explore the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on SEN children and young people.
The second webinar will be with Gina Davies on Friday 13th November at 11:30. Gina is a qualified Speech and Language Therapist who turned her passion for communication development into practical and joyful intervention strategies for parents and professionals dealing with autism. She has worked with hundreds of autistic children in schools, nurseries and residential settings and directly with parents, carers and families.
Both webinars are free of charge and will consist of a 40-minute presentation with an opportunity for any specific questions after.
A spokesperson for SEND IASS says:
“We feel very lucky to be able to offer this at no cost and would urge that you book your place as soon as possible.
“Please call the SEND IASS office: 01983 825548 or email [email protected] to book your place, we will then send you a link to use on the day”.
