NatSIP is pleased to offer this new on-line training session, presented by Jane Sinson.

The NatSIP website event listing notes:  “We all make decisions every day, but are you aware of the process you use to make a decision?  Being able to make decisions is an important life skill, which can have a positive impact on well-being. However, many children and young people with SEN will need direct teaching and guidance to develop this ability, from the earliest age.

Jane Sinson has written an essential practical guidebook for education and associated professionals, using education-focused case studies throughout to illustrate key points, which explains the mechanics of decision-making, introduces the associated language and concepts, and presents both a practical decision-making framework based in the Mental Capacity Act decision-making process, and a decision-making syllabus, from which education professionals can create their own curriculum.

Jane aims to give a thorough introduction to this complex area.  All delegates will receive a copy of Jane’s book  Developing Decision-making with Children and Young People with SEN – A Practical Guide For Education and Associated Professionals

The session will be hosted by NatSIP
