Education for Everyone Roadshow Event

Wednesday 14 March

An event for parents with SEND children - guidance and information on locally available support for children with Autism, ADHD, Speech and Language and Dyslexia

Following feedback from the Bromley Parent Voice [external website] Cake and Share sessions, they've learnt that parent and carers with children at mainstream schools in Bromley want to know more about:

  • Autism
  • ADHD
  • Speech and language
  • Dyslexia

This roadshow offers further guidance on what is happening locally, and how you, as parents can influence the support SEND children receive to allow every child equal access to education.

Join Bromley Parent Voice at The Warren in Bromley to hear from their panel of speakers and network with other parents over a complementary lunch:

Our speakers for this session include:

1. Carrie Grant

Vocal Coach, TV Presenter, Performer, Public Speaker and Parent to 4 x Children with SEND.

Carrie and David Grant are probably best known as judges and vocal coaches on the massively successful TV talent shows. “Pop Idol” (ITV) and the BBC flagship programme “Fame Academy”, and CBBC’s “Pop Shop”.

Carrie and David are ambassadors for many charities including World Vision, The Prince’s Trust and Patron Stage of Performing Arts. Together they host a support group for parents of girls with Asperger’s and work with the National Autistic society supporting a variety of campaigns.

Carrie will present an interactive keynote presentation on SEN and how to engage both parents and teachers in collaboration to achieve the best possible outcomes for children and young people with SEN.

Carrie uses the stories of her incredible children -

  • Olivia 23 with ADHD and Dyspraxia
  • Talia 16 years with, Aspergers and Dyscalculia who has suffered at the hands of bullies and has had mental health issues
  • Imogen 12 years with Autism and ADHD
  • And their adopted son, Nathan 8 years who has ADHD and attachment disorder

In their words -

“They really do put the funk into dysfunctional!”


2. Dan Baynes and Ben Drinkwater from Driver Youth Trust

Talk about their presentation to the All Party Parliamentary Group on Dyslexia [external website] on how to create a school environment that fully supports the needs of dyslexic pupils and allows them to truly show their ability.


3. Andrea Blair, SEMH Specialist SEN Advisory Teacher: Bromley Mental Health Leads Development Network


4. Carol Pyne, Autism Specialist SEN Advisory Teacher: Bromley Autism Champions Development Network



It is also hoped that a number of representatives from the local authority, health and voluntary sector will be available during the complimentary networking lunch and potentially form part of a Q&A panel.
