Brighter Beginnings, East Midlands
Getting the best outcomes for your special needs child


Are you the parent of a special needs child aged 0-8? Do you some-times feel frustrated that you cannot get the support you need for your child, or wonder how you will cope with the challenges ahead?


Support is available in East Midlands with a series of FREE workshops for parents of special needs children. The workshops are designed to help parents make sure they can get the best possible outcomes for their child.


Parents attending the workshops will find out where they can get in-formation and support, they will learn how to prepare for meetings about their child with health or education professionals, and they will be helped to feel more confident about making decisions for their child.
As children move into nursery and infant schools, parents will want to make sure their child has the support they need to reach their full potential. The workshops will explain the system of special needs support in school.


The workshops are being organised by Contact, a charity supporting families of disabled and special needs children and are supported by the Department for Education. They will be held at St Peter’s Church Centre, at 10 St Peter’s Churchyard, City Centre, Derby, DE 1 1NN, on four consecutive Thursday mornings starting from February 28 until March 21. Each session will cover a different topic area and will run from 10am to 12pm.
