Main stage

Welcome to our main stage zone.

Covering all the same vital topics you would hear about at our usual face-to-face Transition Event, the main stage is the main event!

Our live webinars on navigating transition, housing, employment options, education, and EHCPs took place Friday 20th November. If you missed them, don’t fret, we’ve added them below for your information. Please click the images below to watch the webinar recordings.

EHCPs and SEN support – Rukhsana Koser, Langley Wellington LLP

What does SEN support in school actually mean and how can you secure an Education, Health and Care (EHC) needs assessment for your child? What steps should you take to make sure your child’s EHC plan is legally compliant and will address all of their special educational needs, and how do you challenge the local authority if you are unhappy with a decision it has made?

Navigating Transition – Caroline Coady, Council for Disabled Children

Disabled children become disabled adults, so it should be no surprise that they will need to access adult services. In reality, however, the gap in appropriate services can be vast and many young people can find themselves without the support they rely on. How can parents navigate the process to secure the best outcomes, whilst ensuring young people are at the heart of the conversation?

Education options and the future – Bev Jessop, Queen Alexandra College

What are the current education options for young people with additional needs? What do parents need to know to ensure the best education for their child? How do they access it? What are their routes to adult life after school or college?

Practical steps towards independent living – Nic Bungay, Habinteg, and Sam Renke, Actress & Disability Campaigner

Living as independently as possible is important to all young people. What are the housing options for young disabled people? What are the practical steps they can take to own their own home?
