Editor's letter

SEN Magazine Editor Peter Sutcliffe.

It’s one thing to have an SEN system that promises individualised support for children and young people, joined-up provision across health, care and education, and a clear voice for families; it’s quite another to ensure the system works for those who need it and that parents/carers and young people with SEN can access the provision they need and are entitled to.

In this issue of SEN Magazine, Ed Duff takes a look at parents’ rights – how the SEN system is supposed to work for families and what they can do when things go wrong. Elsewhere, in his regular column on SEN law, Douglas Silas explains the legal process for conducting assessments for education, health and care plans – the pathway to support for so many people with SEN.

Also in this issue, Mandy Grist asks whether things have changed for the better a decade on from John Bercow’s landmark report on provision for speech, language and communication needs; James Bowen outlines some of the key sources of professional support for teachers; and Toby Lee provides practical advice to help young people with dyslexia with their time management.

You will also find articles on hydrocephalus, SENCOs, art therapy, performing arts, attachment, safeguarding, epilepsy, specialist seating, yoga, preventing teenage suicide, autism and teacher recruitment.
