Reaching out to SENCOs and teachers
September 21, 2021
Special Educational Needs staff and other education professionals will hear about the impact of M.E., and how they can best support students, at nasen Live 2021 this week.
Action for M.E. will co-host a stand with UK charity Young Epilepsy, together representing the Health Conditions in Schools Alliance (of which both organisations are members), at this conference hosted by the National Association for Special Educational Needs.
We will share the experiences of young people with M.E. and their families, along with key information and resources for teachers, setting out schools’ statutory responsibilities in supporting students with disabilities. Our Services Manager, Clare Ogden, says:
“This is a great opportunity for us to talk face-to-face with school staff about the solutions and adjustments that can effectively support young people with M.E. We will be emphasising the need to build positive, collaborative relationships with parents and children, based on their individual needs, to proactively put the appropriate plans in place.”
Conference delegates can find us on stand 60 in the exhibition hall on Friday, from 9am to 4.30pm, at the Vox Conference Centre in Birmingham.
If you or your child with M.E. needs support, please get in touch – we are here to help.
