The Good Schools Guide – Special Educational Needs Event in West London

The Good Schools Guide presents an evening of talks for parents who want to learn more about Special Educational Needs (SEN). Jointly organised with co-hosts The Ed Psych Practice, the event takes place in Marylebone on 22nd November 2017 with the doors opening at 6pm.

The evening is designed for parents who think that their child may need extra support due to an educational or developmental difficulty. Three talks explore areas key to understanding SEN. Bernadette John, Director of SEN at The Good Schools Guide, discusses the choice between mainstream and special schools and offers advice on working with a child’s current school to get better support. Priya Dhingra, Director at The Ed Psych Practice, explores ways parents can identify whether their son or daughter is struggling at school and how an educational psychologist assesses a child. Professor Samuel Stein, a consultant in Child, Adolescent and Family Psychiatry, will address how to best understand bad behaviour in children and young people. The evening will close with a Q & A where the audience will be able to call on the experience and expertise of the speakers.

Bernadette John says the talks will appeal to all parents with SEN worries. “It promises to be an instructive and educational evening for everyone present. A parent faced with the prospect of a child who needs extra care at school will have a head full of questions but no reliable place to have them answered. The speakers at our event have unrivalled knowledge of SEN and the British education system and will hope to eliminate many of the concerns of those in attendance.”
