Reasonable Adjustments - "I just want to be like everyone else" Nov.2016
What can a school do to make school easier for children and young people with additional needs?
A short film from SEND Family Voices; co-produced with Achieving for Children's Accessibility Strategy Board and local schools. Young People - in their own words.
For all children and young, school is about more than lessons. For someone with a special educational need and/or a disability, there are extra challenges. This is termed 'accessibility' and a school can make 'reasonable adjustments' to make things easier. The law states that a child or young person must not be at a substantial disadvantage to their peers.
This film shows twelve young people talking about their experiences of reasonable adjustments, what works and why it's important - in their own words.
The film is funded by SEND Family Voices and is part of our work with AfC's Accessibility Strategy Board. We co-produced the film with local schools, families and youth participation.
