Working with parent carers of children with disabilities and SEND


Our accessible and jargon-free course gives practitioners practical ideas about how they can better support and work with disabled children and their families.

It is not unusual for workers to feel out of their depth and unskilled when approaching parents, so we will address clear pathways of support for all concerned.

This course aims to help practitioners:

  • Increase understanding of disability, including hidden disability.
  • Increase awareness of the effect of disability on the family.
  • Enable more effective communication with parents.
  • Enable a better start to a working relationship with parents of children with SEND.
