The Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) and Long Term Conditions (LTC) NHS Youth Forum work stream have launched their report on how young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities and/or Long Term Conditions experience education.
Over the last year, members of the NHS Youth Forum have been working in groups to improve health and social care services for young people in certain areas, one of which was targeted at young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities and/or Long Term Conditions.
The report is a reflection of young people’s views of their time in education and informs educators of the preferences children and young people have in an educational setting.
The report has gathered the views of children and young people aged 11-25 years old through a feedback form which addressed two broad questions: ‘when I attend my educational setting I feel…’ and ‘I would like my teachers to know…’.
The aim of asking these questions was to ensure that the group had a full understanding of what that would improve the experience of young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities or Long Term Conditions in education, and that we would be able to translate this into a guide for educators to best support those young people.
