Special Needs Information Day 2013
Contact a Family and Hampshire Parent Partnership Service are pleased to announce that next year’s Special Needs Information Day is on Saturday 27 April 2013 at The Mountbatten School, Romsey
We have been holding these free events for many years, giving families and practitioners the opportunity to gather information about support and services available across the county.
Visitors can come along at any time between 10am and 3pm to browse the exhibits, and to chat to representatives from voluntary organisations and statutory services about a wide range of special needs and related issues.
Alongside the exhibition, a series of workshops and information talks will be on offer, and visitors can pre-book their free places on the sessions of their choice. Parents and carers will be given priority but if spaces are available, then school staff and other professionals are welcome to attend.
Full details of the workshops and talks on offer, including how to book, are available on the right hand side of this page. If you wish to book places on more than one session, please refer to the planner 62 kB. Please complete a booking form 47 kB and return it to us, either by email (preferably) or post.
We are also inviting visitors to drop in to the SEND SE7 Pathfinder Room for an opportunity to find out more and to contribute to the Pathfinder.
