Each week we will look at an element of the Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) reforms and consider how it interacts with the reforms as a whole to create positive outcomes for young people with SEN and disabled young people.
The Preparing for Adulthood (PfA) team believes that it is vital to consider the SEND reforms as a whole when developing processes and plans in local areas however, we also appreciate that there are specific challenges related to each element. This forum gives you an opportunity to pose questions and raise challenges that you are experiencing in local areas as a result of getting ready to implement the reforms and to receive responses from regional champions, experts from the sector and the PfA team.
This week's theme
This week we have three themes open:
1. Supported Employment and Supported Internships
2. Joint Commissioning and Multi-Agency Working
3. Implementing the Care Bill
Please post any questions and challenges which are causing barriers to you implementing this element of the reforms.
You can read the responses to the questions we have received each week in the documents below. So far we have produced FAQs on the Local Offer, Engagement of young people and families, EHC plans and personal budgets, and Personalisation and Person Centred Practice.
