Early Years SEND Workshop

Starting school and special educational needs

​Transition to Primary School Workshop

Starting school is a huge transition point for all children, and when your child has special educational needs we know that it makes it feel even more nerve wracking for parents. It may be that you are still unsure of what exactly your child’s needs are, or you are worried about how they will cope. Our workshops aim to support you by going through the process, making sure you know what to do and when, and offering lots of tips and advice for the journey.

Our transition workshops are fully up to date with process in Bolton and everything is underpinned by what SEND law also says should happen.

The sessions are ideal for parents and carers of children who will be starting in reception class in September 2024 or 2025.

We cover all the support that is possible to be put in place for children who have a special educational needs when they start school. We cover support for children with autism, speech and language needs, challenging behaviour, physical needs, toileting needs, learning difficulties and more.

The application process for schools and what to do if you think your child needs an EHC Plan or a special school.
