Guest Q&A

Event Information

Scottish Autism’s Advice Line and the Enquire Helpline have had a longstanding relationship in supporting children and families with a number of challenges, questions and concerns when accessing education. In this event we will be joined by colleagues from Enquire to discuss some of the challenges parents and children are facing as they return to school. The event will focus on the rights of parents and their children accessing school, as well as offering support and advice. Join us on 30th September where we will be here live to answer your questions.

Cat’s role is creating strong partnerships with organisations working with and supporting children of additional support needs and their families.
