Parents and Carers of children and young people with SEND – do you feel your views are valued by schools?

Parents and Carers of children and young people with SEND – do you feel your views are valued by schools?

One of the Autism Centre’s PhD research students, Katrina Fleming,  would really like to know what parents and carers think about this. It will only take 5 minutes to complete this online questionnaire. Your response will be kept anonymous. Katrina will make every effort to make the findings count towards the development of practice.

You can complete this questionnaire at https://shusls.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_232MjPKljXgOCbj
