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:
- Speech and language
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:

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 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

In their words -
“They really do put the funk into dysfunctional!”
