Supporting parents of children with SEND

Educational Psychology Helpline 0161 276 0118 (Monday – Friday 1.00pm – 3.00pm)

A helpline for parents/carers of children and young people with Special Educational Needs
and Disabilities and for Early Help professionals within Manchester LA.

We can offer a problem-solving phone conversation relating to educating your child/young
person at home and responding to issues relating to learning, behaviour, anxiety and
mental health needs.

For example:

– are you feeling unsure how to teach your child learn at home?
– are you finding it difficult to teach what is expected?
– is it difficult to help your child stay calm or get them to co-operate?
– are you concerned that you don’t have the right equipment or resources?

These are particularly difficult times for parents/carers of children and young people with
special needs and disabilities. We are available to talk through difficulties you may be
facing.

Manchester City have developed a CityzensAtHome site which is publicly available and covers information and activities for people during this time. City in the Community have contributed and there are some physical activities, healthy eating recipes etc suitable for all ages.
