Dan Hughes on inclusive summer fun.
There are more than 1.4 million SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disability) children living in the UK alone.
Despite this growing number, there is still a significant shortage of inclusive clubs, facilities, and activities available for SEND children.
If you’re the parent or carer of a SEND child and you’re reading this, chances are that you’ve struggled to enjoy days out due to a lack of inclusive amenities or the fear of being judged.
The good news is that we’re seeing an increasing number of SEN sessions popping up across the UK-safe inclusive settings where your children can enjoy themselves in their own way and at their own pace.
Reasonable adjustments and smaller numbers mean that your child can access the facilities or amenities they deserve and you can relax, safe in the knowledge that the people around you understand.
If you’re looking for fun and inclusive days out over the summer season, here are four featured SEN sessions that are worth checking out.
Dan Hughes is a musician, content writer, and proud SEN parent. He is currently on a mission to inspire more businesses across the UK to set up SEN sessions. He lives in North Staffordshire with his wife, Lynsey, son, Sidney, and labrador dog, River.
