Wednesday 3rd April 2019 (with optional Q&A session, drinks reception and dinner on the evening of Tuesday 2nd April) - London
The theme of this year’s conference is ‘diversity, difference, dynamics’. Through this, we are recognising both the very wide range of provision and context for leaders, and the diverse experiences of young people with SEND whom they serve. For us, SEND is just the beginning of the story in terms of the ways in which one young person will differ from another. Throughout the conference programme we aim to explore and offer insight into the enormous breadth of challenges faced by young people and their educators, condensed into this very general heading of SEND.
This year we welcome keynote speakers from both the Royal College of Psychiatrists and the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists, reflecting the growing partnership between the NAHT and these organisations in campaigning for the needs of learners. We also have a range of carefully commissioned workshops which are designed to inspire, stimulate and empower all those working with pupils with SEND. They will be led by experts in these areas.
