Event for Parents of pupils with Additional Support Needs

ASN Parents’ Forum

 The ASN Parents’ Forum meets 3 times each school year. The meetings are an opportunity for parents and carers of children with additional support needs to come along and meet other parents and carers  and educational professionals.

 Each meeting starts with tea/coffee, followed by a themed presentation from relevant professionals. (Past themes have included Getting It Right For Every Child (GIRFEC), Dyslexia and the Educational Psychology Service). After that, parents and carers can speak face to face with a range of professionals involved in the Forum offering advice and support.

 Come along to find out more about Additional Support for Learning, receive updates on additional support needs matters and have your say in any joint Council-Parent ASN workgroups that come up.  The last forum of the year is as follows:
