Follow up from Through the Looking Glass launch
On the 23rd March we launched our third research report: Through the Looking Glass.
Our previous reports have added value to the wider debates on education and SEND and this latest addition will raise, question and challenge the issues the sector should be addressing if we really want to improve universal provision for all children and young people; that is more exposure of SEND in mainstream educational thinking and better planning for supporting the needs of learners where Quality First Teaching is simply not enough.
We call on those commissioning and funding research to include SEND, where it is currently absent, and highlight the difficulties school face in accessing specialist support. This is a theme DYT will be pursuing over the coming year, with additional publications planned for Autumn 2017.
