Free courses supporting parents

Supporting young people's mental health and wellbeing run by Suffolk County Council

The workshops are 60-minutes long and will be recorded so anyone unable to attend can watch the workshop.   These are courses are running throughout the Autumn term 2021.

SENDIASS - Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Information Advice and Support Service 

Suffolk SENDIASS is a confidential and impartial information, advice and support service on issues related to Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND). It is free, easy to access and confidential. We can help children, parents and young people take part in decisions that affect their lives. 

We offer information, advice and support to: 

  • Children and young people (up to 25 years) with SEND 
  • Parents and carers of children with SEND 

  • Practitioners (who might support children, young people or parents to access our service) 

The SENDIASS website is a well-used resource, packed with information and advice for families. In August we moved our website to a new platform.

1. SEN Support in Schools for Pupils with Specific Learning Difficulties  This informal session will be supported by the Lead Teacher for the Specific Learning Difficulties Service and we will look at the cycle of SEN support, how you and your child are involved, and we will explore examples of support which schools can reasonably offer.

2. Autism and ADHD – simple strategies and resources  
In our recent Training and Information survey, parents and carers asked for more support and information about Autism and ADHD. 
We are fortunate to be collaborating this term with Dr Annie Clements, founder of the social enterprise Autism and ADHD, to offer a relaxed one-hour virtual session for parents and carers at the end of September, exploring simple strategies and resources for supporting children and young people with these needs.  We will host the session and Dr Clements will deliver the presentation and lead discussion.
