Welcome to EalingHELP Minimize

Work continues apace on the  Ealing SEND Fair and we're looking forward to an amazing day. Please remember the date - 24 February and let as many people as possible know. 

We've had quite a degree of confusion over the title. What exactly does SEND stand for? Some people were wondering where people were being sent to and others thought that it meant a Special Educational Needs Day.

So just to clarify we are using it to signify Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities. One thing that puzzles me about the use of this acronym is - what term should we use for people who are no longer in education? So many of the terms we use are related to learning or education. I'm thinking aloud now but  I would welcome any thoughts you might have on the matter.

Please visit our Ealing SEND Fair pages to see the full list of exhibitors and the full workshop programme
