Over the past 12 months, we have received a deluge of questions and queries about the SEN reforms. From this, we can only assume that the word is not getting out to parents (or practitioners) about the changes that are coming.
As we don't like to assume anything (the words "ass" "u" and "me" spring to mind), we wanted to find out exactly how much you do know about the SEN reforms including the proposed Education, Health & Care Plan, the Local Offer and Personal Budgets.
We have put together a survey - SEN Reforms: How informed are you?
Please take a few minutes to let us know what you know. There is the option to add additional comments if you wish to some of the answers, but this is not required. We just know that many of you have a lot to say!
Anyone completing the survey has an opportunity to enter into a prize draw to win one of five copies of the E-book version of Tania's "Special Educational Needs - Getting Started with Statements". You can download it in most formats or PDF if you don't have a e-reader or app.*
We will publish the results along with posts answering some of the questions.
Please share the survey with as many friends and colleagues as possible - it would be really good to get a national view.
*Make sure you enter your email address to be in with a chance to win.
Ebook winners will be chosen at random after the survey has closed at 5pm on 12th June 2013 and notified by email and sent a single-use only download code for the ebook from Smashwords. You may, of course, donate your winning code to someone else instead of keeping it for yourself, but it is only valid for one download. The ebook may not be transferred to anyone else after download.
