This week, Dinah and Holly, two deaf young people, shared their experience at the All Party Parliamentary Group on Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (APPG SEND) meeting last week. Here are their messages to my colleagues in the group:
“It was lovely to meet you all and talk to the people who will help us help make a change for sensory disabled children and young people.” – Holly
“Coronavirus has been extremely difficult for everyone in many different ways, but thank you for giving us the opportunity to share with you our experiences of some of the barriers…such as online learning, facemasks and the lack of support while applying for an EHCP” – Dinah
My colleagues and I in the APPG and campaigners at The National Deaf Children’s Society will be doing everything in our power to make sure we use their experiences to hold the government to account and secure real change.
