Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) in UK Schools by Carrie Grant

Step into the shoes of a child with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) in today’s schools and experience the journey of a parent advocating for their rights in “Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) in UK Schools” by Carrie Grant.

Carrie Grant’s family reflects the rich tapestry of identities we all possess. Among her four children, two are autistic, three have AD(H)D, one is adopted, all come from dual heritage backgrounds, and three embrace various queer and trans non-binary identities. In this moving and thought-provoking book, the presenter, coach, and advocate shares poignant stories from her family’s encounters with the education system, schools, and mental health services. As a mother to children classified as having SEND, Carrie explores the challenges they face when the educational system lacks the training and preparation to support a diverse population. These stories reveal that schools can range from being ineffective at best to traumatising at worst.

This book serves as an inspiring call to action and is essential reading for:

  • Teachers and aspiring educators seeking insights into meeting the diverse needs of their students.
  • SENCOs (Special Educational Needs Coordinators) and individuals training to work in SEND support roles.
  • GPs, community health workers, and professionals in Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS).
  • Parents of children with SEND who seek guidance on advocating for their child’s educational needs.

“Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) in UK Schools” sheds light on the challenges faced by children with SEND and their families while advocating for more inclusive and supportive educational environments.
