“Lorraine has a real no-nonsense approach and says things we as SENDCos have been saying for years. I have recommended this presentation to all the SENDCos I have been working with as I feel it will really help them to not only get a good overview but know they are not alone. It was refreshing to hear and so useful for SENDCos to be able to access it afterwards at their leisure.”
