An exciting additional SEND event introduced in response to COVID-19.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are excited to be bringing you this additional SEND Seminar in February 2021. With our educationally renowned keynotes speakers originally booked for the 2020 SEND conference, we are sure this half day seminar will provide you with uplifting and expert insights.
Rona Tutt is an inspirational school leader and advocate for SEND, and her well respected writing and speaking will set the tone for the day.
We also have Fintan O'Regan delivering relevant, interesting and challenging viewpoints of SEND. His work has helped to provide clarity, empathy and understanding of our most vulnerable learners.
