Workshop Activity: Your Top Three

What's in your top 3?

At Trafford Parent's Forum launch we asked a simple question:

From your experiences - what you would you say were the top three key pieces of information you have been given, or found out about?

Responses included:

  • "Parent Support Advisor"
  • "Information and guidance about DLA eligibility I found out from other parents"
  • "Feedback on other parent's experiences of health professionals"
  • "Huge differences in attitudes / approaches to SEN within local schools - wish there was a way getting impartial and realistic feedback"
  • "Jargon Buster - used by Boomerang in helping to fill out forms"
  • "NAS courses on sensory needs"
  • "Incredible Years courses - life changing info given to me by my health visitor 5 years ago"
  • "The nursery teacher suggested my daughter had selective mutism - this led to a paediatrician then speech therapy"
  • "My daughter has had varous courses of homeopathy which lead to noticable imrovements like making eye contact and having bowel control"

Survey: Young person's local offer

At the end of 2013 we asked young people what sort of information they would like to see in a local offer specifically written for them. 110 young people responded.

  • The most important area of information they wanted including on their local offer was around Family and Relationships.
  • The most important thing to them was Money and Personal Budgets.
  • The most popular way of getting this information was by using a website on a computer, though video content also scored highly.

Trafford's Youth Channel was launched in June 2015.

You can view our local offer written for, and involving young people with SEND at our Preparing For Adulthood pages.

Survey: SEND information day

Information Day

We spoke to a lot of people at the SEND information day which took place on 18 March 2015. The sort of questions we asked people on the day included:

1. How easy can you find information on the Local Offer?

2. Are there any words you have used in a search which didn't bring back any results, or returned the wrong things?

3. Are there any 'gaps' that you are aware of that could help us better develop services or activities that meet your or your family's needs?

4. How do you think we can further develop or review the local offer?

You can see the range of answers we received, and all that what we have done in response, within the main Feedback page.
