A message from Children in Scotland in relation to the Doran Review
Doran Review: Have Your Say on Complex Additional Support Needs
Children in Scotland is inviting interested parties to a series of free half-day consultation events for parents, carers and support groups and would very much appreciate it if you could pass the information on to any parents, carers or colleagues you know who would be interested in contributing their views.
On behalf of the Scottish Government, Peter Doran is currently chairing a review of how best to provide education for Scottish children and young people with the most complex learning needs. The Doran Review will be providing recommendations to the Scottish Government in June 2012 on how the system can be improved.
These consultation events are to gather the views of both families and parent support groups on the key issues, which will be submitted to the Review.
You will be asked for your views on:
● how satisfied you are with the processes to identify your child’s care, health and learning needs
● how well informed you feel about schools and services that could help your child
● how well your child’s nursery or school and other services such as health and Social Work are meeting his or her needs
● how well supported you and your child feel when he/she is preparing to leave and settling in to a new school or leaving school to go on to adult services.
