Editor's letter

SEN Magazine Editor Peter Sutcliffe.

When it comes to big decisions for parents/carers, there are few more important than the choice of school for their child. All families want their sons and daughters to flourish at school, but finding the setting that will bring out the best in them can be a tough task, particularly if the child has special needs. 

In this issue of SEN Magazine, Bernadette John provides a useful guide to choosing a school or college for a child with SEN and outlines some of the key issues for parents to consider.  

Also in our schools section, Eleanor Bond offers up useful advice on planning an educational school trip, and Jane Thomas looks at the changing role of the school SENCO.

Helping others to understand autistic spectrum disorders is the key theme of our autism feature. Joy Beaney reveals how peer awareness programmes can help change pupils’ attitudes towards their autistic peers, and Alex Manners explains the impact of Asperger’s syndrome on his life.  

In our feature on specific learning difficulties, Diana Hudson looks at how dyspraxia affects students and what adults can do to help, while Theresa Sainsbury provides practical tips for parents to promote learning and development in their child with dyslexia.

You will also find articles on SEN law, learning disability, BESD, supported internships, SEN publishing, technology in the classroom, adoption and school leaders.
