Feedback from parents at previous conferences:
“Thank you so much for offering all your expertise and advice. I feel so much more confident about starting the EHCP process”
“Thank you – very useful. Have learned a lot and had some misinformation corrected!”
“I wish I’d had this three years ago as school has been evasive”
“Very obvious that you all really care about SEN and gaining the right plans and placements for our children, some very good information, I have attended a number of events but this was the most entertaining!”
“Watkins Solicitors are very knowledgeable and friendly and absolutely brilliant. Thank you so much, this will make a huge difference to my two autistic children. Very funny too, loved it.”
“I attended with a group of friends and we all felt that it was a brilliant day, where we learned a lot more about SEN processes. I know it was the best presented and most factual advice and information session that I have attended, so I hope you continue with these sessions."
“Very informative. Lots of great advice. In a fun informal setting”
