SEND Strand

  • Dedicated to SEND, curated by Jarlath O'Brien
  • Seven sessions on Day Two
  • Over 10 expert speakers
  • From supporting children with ADHD to student voice

This year the Festival is delighted to host a strand dedicated to SEND curated by Jarlath O'Brien, Executive Headteacher, TES behaviour columnist and author. SEND is a hot topic in education at the minute - concerns expressed by teachers on the training they receive to do a good job teaching children with SEND, significant financial pressures faced by all local authorities, concerns that children with SEND are negatively affected by performance pressures on schools and low parental satisfaction all make for an area of our work that is in serious need of improvement. Taking place on day two of the Festival the strand aims to cover as much of the main SEND landscape as possible. There are sessions on supporting children with ADHD, working in partnerships with parents, research to support teaching children with dyslexia, girls and autism, working with teaching assistants and a powerful session on student voice from a teacher and his former student. The sessions will be run by some of the most influential people in the SEND world and includes teachers, parents and students.
