Editor's letter

Finding the school that’s the right fit for your child can be a tough task. Academic achievements tend to top most families’ lists, but if you are the parent/carer of a child with SEN, there are many other considerations that could be more important. How will your child respond to the physical environment at school? Which type of school will best enable them to flourish socially and emotionally? How can you find a setting that will equip your child with the practical skills they will need when they leave school?   

In this issue of SEN Magazine, Bernadette John of The Good Schools Guide provides useful advice on choosing the right school or college for your child.

Elsewhere, Douglas Silas explains the law around special educational provision; members of the British Dyslexia Association’s New Technologies Committee look at how assistive technology is helping learners with dyslexia; and Craig Goodall asks young people with autism to describe their experiences of school.

You will also find articles on trauma informed diagnosis, school trips, music, higher education, digital games, dyspraxia, adoption, literacy/phonics, resilience, SEBD, mental health, SEN publishing, access arrangements and recruitment.

If you would like to have your say, our point of view section is for families, professionals and people with SEN to discuss any subject relating to SEN. If you’re interested in contributing, please send me a short email.
