In the spring and summer of 2018, NAFIS delivered a project to support local authorities to improve their information provision on childcare for children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). We designed a self-assessment tool for local authorities so that they could identify opportunities for improvement in their practice and ran two workshops with local authority staff and parents to build on this self-assessment through peer review and user feedback.
This report summarises learning from the workshops and sits alongside the self-assessment tool for local authority. It provides the key points of discussion from the workshop and the improvements and successes that local authority staff identified. It is intended to support local authorities to reflect on their own practice and identify possible areas where they can make changes to better meet families’ needs.
