Training for SEND parents and carers
Parents and carers of children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) sometimes need additional support and advice through online training or workshops.
Usually this training is free through charities or support services, where they tend to focus on specific SEND needs, or to help others to understand more about the world of SEND.
