Green Paper: Children And Young People With Special Educational Needs And Disabilities – Call For Views

The Green Paper: Children And Young People With Special Educational Needs And Disabilities – Call For Views was launched today by Sarah Teather, the Minister of State for Children and Families.

She has asked for the views of everyone with an interest in the needs of children in England with special educational needs (SEN) or disabilities.  All views and perspectives will be considered in drafting a Green Paper on SEN and disability to be published in the Autumn.  We have until 15th October 2010 to contribute.

You can respond online on the Dept for Education website.  Here is the link.

I hope that any changes this may lead to will be positive ones.  I will be responding, although I don’t hold out much hope that the provision for our children will escape the savage cuts planned by the coalition government.  If we fail to participate in this opportunity to help define government policy, we can’t complain about any adverse results from the Green Paper, can we?
