SEND Webinar Series: 

There is another way

with Ruth Whiteside M.Ed, PGCE, BA (hons)

What’s in a name?

When talking about ‘special needs’ or ‘disabilities’, too often the words we use are related to a deficit model of our expectations. What if we could turn this around so that we operated from a strengths model instead? This series of webinars will explore current discourse and look for ways to respond positively to all children and young people. 

this series is open to anyone who wants to see change happen and services that meet the needs of the individual instead of the individual needing to meet the needs of service provision
