Special Educational Needs and Inclusion Proposals Scrutinised

At a special event organised by the Northern Ireland Assembly Committee for Education the Department of Education’s proposals for Special Educational Needs (SEN) and Inclusion came under scrutiny.

The policy proposals, which are currently under public consultation, have led an unprecedented number of parents and organisations representing children to write to the Committee expressing concern.

As part of its scrutiny the Committee invited the Department of Education to present its proposals to a concerned audience of over 140 parents and representatives from disability groups who were given the opportunity to ask questions about the impact of the proposed changes at a practical level.
