14 Oct 2014 IPSEA launches new website and parent training

IPSEA has developed parent carer training on the SEND reforms and a brand new website to help families (and those who support them) understand and exercise their legal rights when it comes to the new SEND reforms.

Part 3 of the Children and Families Act 2014 (covering the SEN legal framework) was implemented on Monday 1 September 2014.

New website: www.ipsea.org.uk

IPSEA offers free and independent legally based information, advice and support to help get the right education for children and young people with all kinds of special educational needs (SEN) and disabilities.

The new site is packed full of new information and new briefings about the new law, including:

Reminders about the old law that applies during the transition
A new "Resource Finder"
A brand new resource answering 12 FAQS about the new law
A popular EHC plan checklist is in the section on EHC plans
The site is still being worked on and improved but will be an essentital tool for our familes.
