Special educational needs support and the Equality Act

Photo: Learn how to create good listening conditions in the learning environment

The SEND Code of Practice sets out a new legal framework for supporting children with special educational needs (SEN). But what does it mean and how can you ensure that deaf children with SEN support get the help they need?

This one-day workshop will help you understand the legal requirements to support deaf children, particularly those who do not have an Education, Health and Care plan. You’ll learn how to improve your professional practice and how the ‘assess, plan, do, review’ cycle can be applied to deaf children. We will also discuss the Equality Act 2010 and what the duties to advance equality of opportunity and to make reasonable adjustments mean for you in practice. You’ll leave the workshop more confident about your role in ensuring that there is good quality support for all children and young people with sensory needs

Key themes

  • Understanding the legislation relating to support for deaf children
  • Advancing equality of opportunity and making reasonable adjustments
  • How to support schools and other education providers to understand and fulfil their duties under the legislation
  • Ways to support families with their questions about SEN support and the Equality Act
