Series of coffee mornings

This term SENDIASS is hosting a series of relaxed online ‘coffee mornings’ where members of the Specialist Education Service for pupils with Speech, Language and Communication Needs will explore some simple games anyone can play at home to help their child’s speaking and listening. 

Each session will focus on a different theme and will be offered in the morning and repeated in the evening. Please do share details with any families whose children may have speech and language difficulties.

The first session will focus on games for listening and attention.

January 21st at 10.00am and repeated at 6.00pm.

Surveys / Consultations

Sponsor announced for second new school for Suffolk children with communication and interaction needs

The East Anglian Schools Trust (EAST) has been announced as the sponsor of the new school in Suffolk for children with communication and interaction needs.

We've begun work on our new SEND Strategy for Suffolk for 2021-2023.

If you'd like to, you can fill out our Feedback survey here. You don't have to give your name (though you can if you want to) and you can fill it out more than once if you think of something additional you want to tell us - we want to hear it all, good and bad.

Your voice matters, and we want to hear feedback from as wide a range of people as possible, in order to shape our services around what Suffolk families want.
