Please come along to our Education subgroup to talk to other parents about special educational needs (SEN), swap useful information, and help us influence education policy – particularly the implementation of the SEN reforms – in Sheffield. This is a friendly and informal group, and new members are always welcome! No need to book, just turn up.
Come and chat to other parents and carers. Tea, coffee and CAKE! Pop in for a few minutes or stay for the whole session – no need to book. We welcome all parent carers, whatever their children’s needs, whether diagnosed or undiagnosed, mild or severe. Pre-schoolers and home-educated children welcome.
This is a discounted, disability-friendly trampolining session for children and young people with additional needs and their siblings. There are no age restrictions, but, children under the age of six must be accompanied in the jump area by an adult.
The cost is £4 for anyone (child or adult) who wants to enter the jump area. There is no charge for parents who just want to watch their children on the trampolines. Sessions must be pre-booked and pre-paid, and a link to the booking form will be published here shortly.
This workshop will be run for us by Cerebra.
It is aimed at parents/carers of children aged 13-16 years with neurological and neuro-developmental disorders, such as autism, cerebral palsy, learning disabilities, global developmental delay, ADHD, epilepsy or Down’s Syndrome.
The workshop will explain how welfare benefits change when a young person turns 16; for example, the transition from Disability Living Allowance (DLA) to Personal Independence Payment (PIP). We will also cover other benefits starting at 16 that parents may not be aware of, such as Employment and Support Allowance (ESA), and explain how parents can continue to manage their young person’s benefits through the appointeeship system.
