Edward Timpson speaks to the Local Government Association special educational needs conference

To read his speech see here


In March 2011, the Government published a 'Green Paper' setting out their proposed changes for children and young people with special educational needs (SEN), learning difficulties and disabilities, across services provided by health, social care and education. This was in response to the fact that hundreds of thousands of families have a disabled child or a child with SEN. Parents have said that the current system is bureaucratic and adversarial and that it does not sufficiently reflect the needs of their child and their family life.

The Government have set up a Pathfinder programme, to help test if the proposals in the Green Paper could work in practice and make a difference.


The Pathfinder programme is referred to in the Ministers speech. Have any of you been involved in the programme and has it made a difference?
