SEND Searchlights Webinar Series #5

Hosted Date

Taking no longer than a coffee break, this is the fifth of our monthly SEND-themed webinar "SEND Searchlights”. We answered your burning SEND assessment questions and shared knowledge and experience with colleagues from across the world!

This informal forum was facilitated by GL Education’s Emma Dibden and Polly Marsh, who bring their experience as former SENCos to bear as they answer questions posed by you, the educators working on the ground, and provide guidance on how to use assessment data to effectively identify and support your students who may be experiencing barriers to learning.

If you missed the other webinars in this series, you can catch up here.
