SEND Support

Get Free access to the Parent Portal this term to support your pupils with SLCN during lockdown!

Our award-winning Parent Portal enables Speech Link and Language Link subscribers to provide the resources, advice and activities needed for families to support their children, with SLCN, at home.

Last year, due to the COVID-19 crisis, we gave free access to this site for every school, parent and carer enabling them to continue vital speech and language development work with their children while schools were closed.

The good news is that we are offering access to the Parent Portal for Free again this term, along with some great new features to help you offer the best SLCN support to your families, when you sign up for our SLCN newsletter, The Link News.

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.
