Parent Power, funded by the National Lottery Community Fund
The Nystagmus Network invites parents and carers to attend the first of our Parent Power education workshops.
Venue: Southampton Sight, 3 Bassett Avenue, Southampton, SO16 7DP
Date: Saturday 12 October
Time: 10am to 2pm
The aim of the project is to empower parents and carers with legally based information on how to advocate for their children with nystagmus to ensure they receive appropriate support across all stages of education.
Led by our 2 IPSEA trained education advocates, Frances Lilley and Claire Brinn, delegates will learn about the rights of their children under law and receive advice on how to access the range of SEN support available to visually impaired children, including an explanation of the EHC plan process.
The workshops will also cover practical information on exam access arrangements, reading resources and transition plans. Content will be tailored to the age and educational stage of your child.
Following the workshop, there will be an informal networking lunch from 12.30. Your partners, other family members and children are welcome to join us for lunch and will have the opportunity to network with others, chat with Frances and Claire and also meet local adults living with nystagmus.
