Introduction from Regional Development Officer
My name is Ken Upton and I have started a ten month contract with IPSEA as the Regional Development Officer for the North West. My role is to get to know local parent and carer groups in my area. IPSEA have secured funding for me to do this until 31st March 2016. I am not able to give any advice or support. If you need advice about getting the right education for a child/young person with special educational needs and/or disabilities, please use one of IPSEA's services.
We want to make sure that parents and carers know how to get information, advice and support so that they can achieve better outcomes for their children. I can offer an introductory session for local parent/carer groups to explain who I am how I might be able to support your group.
I can also send regular and up-to-date information about what's happening for children, young people and their families in the world of special educational needs and disability.
If you would like to speak to me further please contact me via firstname.lastname@example.org
Best Wishes, Ken
