  • Information session: Children with Restricted Diets

    • Is your child a very “faddy eater”? Is this impacting on family life? Are you worried that your child might not be getting all the nutrition they need?

      This workshop will be led by a Senior Specialist Speech and Language Therapist in Paediatric Dysphagia. We will look at the types of restricted diets children can have and the reasons why children restrict their diet. We will cover the evidence base for supporting children with restricted diets and what that means in practice, at home and at school.

  • SEND Inclusion Strategy workshop

    • Sheffield City Council and Sheffield CCG are developing an Inclusion Strategy for Sheffield. The strategy will set their priorities for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) over the next five years.

      Over the summer, officers have been collecting feedback from parent carers, young people and professionals.

      We are hosting this workshop for parents to look at the feedback received so far. SPCF parent representatives will then take your views to a main co-production session to ensure that your voice is heard when creating the strategy.
