For any readers in Northern Ireland, I will be speaking at a conference in Belfast on Thursday 26 August 2010. The conference is run by the Special Educational Needs Advice Centre (SENAC), in conjunction with the Queen’s University Centre for Human Rights and goes by the title: “SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS: AN OVERVIEW OF RECENT DEVELOPMENTS IN EDUCATION POLICY, LAW AND PRACTICE IN SCOTLAND AND ENGLAND”.
I will be sharing my insights (!) on five years of the Education (Additional Support for Learning) (Scotland) Act 2004 in a presentation called “Additional Support Needs, the Scottish Experience”.
Also speaking are Brian Lamb OBE, Philippa Stobbs and Frances Ross-Watt. If you are at all interested and happen to be based in or near Belfast, you can find a booking form for the conference right here:
