Inclusion for all: the power of pupil voice for learners with SEND

#BERA_SEND

 

Since the SEND Reforms of 2014, children with SEND and their famalies are meants to be ‘at the heart of the process’. However, reports and research in recent years have shown that this is often not the case with families and young people still having to fight for resources. Since March, many families with children with SEND have felt abandoned with emergency legislation removing their tight to support. We are keen to hear about ways in which colleagues are including learners with SEND to fulfil an active role in their research.

We are particularly interested in hearing from Early Career researchers.

We are also interested in the challenges Covid-19 is placing in this process and how researchers are adapting their methods.

Please send a 250 word abstract to for a 15 minute presentation on
any aspect of the above by December 15th 2020
