Preparing for Adulthood: new online forum

Preparing for Adulthood has launched a new online forum. Each week they will look at an element of the Special Needs and Disability (SEND) reforms and consider how it interacts with the reforms as a whole to create positive outcomes for young people with SEN and disabled young people.

The preparing for Adulthood (PfA) team believes that it is vital to consider the SEND reforms as a whole when developing processes and plans in local areas however, they also appreciate that there are specific challenges related to each element. This forum gives you an oppportunity to pose questions and raise challenges that you are experiencing in local areas as a result of getting ready to implement the reforms and to receive resposes from
regional champions, experts fromt he sector and the PfA team.

If you would like to register and post to the forum, please visit their website:
