Ceri Reed, Parents Voices in Wales - How to Advocate For Your Child

This session will provide an introduction to advocacy, and the best way to ensure that your child gets the support that they need.

The session will cover: the importance of advocacy and what it looks like in practice; how to develop shared expectations with service providers (eg school); how this relates to ALN reform and the importance of adopting a needs-led (rather than label-led) approach.
