The SEN Jigsaw Puzzle 2017. Helping to solve the puzzle for your child.

Staffordshire's yearly SpLD event aims to provide a holistic resource to supporting those with SpLDs such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, autism, speech and language, auditory processing and visual processing.  Whilst there is a focus on children, the content will equally be appropriate to SEN in adult education too.

Join us to listen to our two plenary speakers and choose from a range of six afternoon workshops that are all focused on aspects of Special Educational Needs. 

Teachers, parents, adults in education/ training, SENCOS, Dyslexia tutors,and speech and language therapists are all welcome.

The day will include two morning plenary talks from SEN thought leaders and in the afternoon there will be a number of workshops that will cover different aspects of SEN.  These include:

  • Assistive Technology For Literacy
  • Education, Health and Care Planning.
  • Sensory activities
  • and many more.

The cost of the tickets includes a two course hot lunch.  Please contact me if you have special dietary requirements.

Next steps for Additional Learning Needs provisions in Wales

Morning, Tuesday, 18th July 2017

Central Cardiff


This seminar will provide an opportunity to discuss the future of Additional Learning Needs (ALN) provision in Wales.

It is timed as the Welsh Government undertakes its Additional Learning Needs Transformation programme, which aims to create a unified system for supporting learners from 0 to 25 with ALN, and is underpinned by the Additional Learning Needs and Education Tribunal (Wales) Bill introduced to the National Assembly for Wales in December 2016.

Delegates will discuss the implementation of the transformation programme which places an increased focus on early identification, changes all references to SEN to ALN, sees the creation of an individualised plan for each young person with ALN, and simplifies the dispute resolution system.
