There are nearly 80,000 children and young people in NI on the current Special Educational Needs (SEN) register.
The SEN Learner Journey Project aims to transform communication and engagement for learners, their parents/carers and relevant stakeholders in implementing the new SEN Framework to create a Learner centric system and improve service delivery, experience and outcomes for pupils.
The new SEN Framework includes the Special Education and Disability Act (NI) 2016 and the regulations and Code of Practice supporting its implementation.
We have developed a survey for parents and carers of children with SEN to help inform the project. Parenting NI have helpfully agreed to facilitate the survey and will report its findings to the Department.
Please help us and complete the survey at: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/N8RZGD8
