Editor's letter

SEN Magazine Editor Peter Sutcliffe.

Third sector organisations across the globe are busy gearing up for World Autism Awareness Day (WAAD) on 2 April. Many UK bodies will also be recognising Autism Awareness Week (27 March to 2 April) and Autism Awareness Month (April 2017).

These events represent high-profile opportunities to highlight key issues facing people on the autistic spectrum and their families. In this issue of SEN Magazine, three of the UK’s leading autism charities outline their priorities going forward, what they will be doing to promote understanding of autism and how you can get involved. 

Also in this issue, Becky Pinniger finds gardening to be an ideal way to facilitate learning outside the classroom; Gareth Jones and Sheena Hardwick examine the role of sensory equipment in encouraging educational development and Patrick Tonks looks at ways to support children with sensory processing disorders.  

Elsewhere in this issue, you will find articles on music therapy, wheelchair accessible vehicles, specialist seating, Tourette’s syndrome, ADHD, short breaks, transition to adult services, dyslexia, and school workforce management.

In his regular SEN legal Q&A, specialist solicitor Douglas Silas looks at what students with SEN can expect from their college.

And as always, our CPD, training and events section includes a round-up of forthcoming seminars, courses and exhibitions for parents/carers, teaching staff and SEN professionals.
