The Council for Disabled Children (CDC) has launched two new email inboxes aimed to answer questions, collect resources and share information on Coronavirus and the impact on children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). They’re designed to be used by professionals, practitioners, parent carers and families of children and young people with SEND.
The new ‘CDC questions’ inbox gives you the opportunity to ask questions about how coronavirus will impact on children and young people with SEND as well as other questions relating to the impact on families; the education, health, social care sectors; and the voluntary and community sector. CDC will pull together the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) and share them with the Department for Education and Ministers as appropriate, in order to publish an FAQs newsflash each Friday.
To get a copy the FAQs newsflash please sign up to the CDC mailing list, selecting the ‘CDC Digest’ option.
The ‘CDC resources’ inbox, is designed to enable parent carers, sector professionals and practitioners to share resources, to support families of children and young people with SEND and practitioners across the disabled children’s sector. CDC will add these resources to their COVID-19 Support and Guidance webpage. The webpage is kept under continuous review.
