Published: 05 March 2020
A report taking a look at what happened and what was learned at the first Shout Out for SEND conference for young people. The conference took place on 7 November 2019 at Adams Park in High Wycombe.
The Shout Out for SEND conference was aimed at young people with Education, Health and Care Plans (EHCPs) and those who are registered as SEN Support. The purpose of the conference was to provide opportunities for young people with SEND to share their views on their experiences of living and being educated in Buckinghamshire, to enable a coproduced new SEND and Inclusion Strategy for the local area.
All of the activities centred around the key questions above, with a focus on school, out of school, and Preparation for Adulthood. Young people were encouraged to think about their own experiences and views as well as those of other young people, as far as they were able.
