This week, I responded to a request from a research company looking to talk to anyone who works in special educational needs. I clicked through and booked a timeslot. I spent a fascinating and thought-provoking hour talking to Nick and Anna. As a thank you for our time, everyone who takes part receives a £10 Amazon voucher or can make a charitable donation instead.

By listening and responding to our experiences, they will be able to identify what is working well and what could be improved. Their project is primarily to inform council policy in the South West, but they would also like to hear from you if you live elsewhere too.
I was able to talk to them as an education provider, but I found I was even more passionate when talking as an adult who is Neurodiverse and as a parent who has fought for their child too!
They want to speak to as many different people with as wide a range of experiences and circumstances as possible to try and formulate better policies for councils to implement.
