We are one of a number of organisations that have written to Children & Families Minister Vicky Ford about the impact of coronavirus on children with SEND
The letter raises concerns about the legal changes; preparations for the return to school; and the urgent need to progress the SEND Review.
In many ways the restrictions faced within the current pandemic has simply magnified the pre-existing inequalities experienced by children and young people with SEND over many years. The SEND Review and the Care Review urgently need to focus on the design of health and social care provision to support children, young people and their families in their local community. We would welcome any opportunities for ongoing dialogue with the Minister and the department to help clarify and find solutions to the issues we have raised.
