ALN Reform in Wales – Meeting the needs of our children and young people.

During this session, Nina Jackson, International Mental Health, Wellbeing and ALN Consultant will share with you the key points for addressing and implementing the Welsh ALN Reform in your educational setting.

This is about children and young people at the heart of learning, ensuring their needs are met effectively, consistently and with the support of teachers and parents. Preparing our children and young people for the future, this ALN Reform hopes to  transform expectations, experiences and outcomes for children and young people with additional learning needs (ALN).

This will help our children to overcome barriers to learning and achieve their full potential, improve the planning and delivery of support for learners up to the age of 25 and place the learners’ needs, views, wishes and feelings at the heart of the process. Understanding and taking the transition from existing learning support plans such as statements, Individual Education Plans (IEPs)  and Learning Skills Plans (LSPs) will eventually consist of IDP’s – Individual Development Plans. Let’s get this right – together.

Through building an ALN support network at the National Education Show no teacher, child or parent will be left behind feeling unsure about the future of provision for ALN.

I am very much looking forward to being and working with you all. Nina Jackson @musicmind.
