Catch up on some fab Special Needs news and blogs from this week

So, later today I am heading out for the BritMums bloggers conference and awards. As you know, Special Needs Jungle is a finalist in the 'Change' category. As something of a niche subject, I'm really not expecting to win - reaching the finals, thanks to all your votes, was such a brilliant feeling to know that you like the blog enough to make the effort to vote and I'm very grateful to everyone who did. If you're going to the conference, please say hello to me!

Last week's SEN conference has given me lots of material for posts - and I'm not finished yet. Next week I'll be bringing you a large chunk of Charlie Mead's talk about the state of care for Looked after Children. It's something we should all care about. Also, if you haven't already seen it, check out my post (below) about when we went to see Temple Grandin speak and my view on the SEN pathfinder so far and why I think the timetable is still too rushed.

Have a great weekend - may the sun peek out on us at some point!
