I was very impressed with the professionalism of the service and literature and extremely grateful for the advice provided. In our case, the [Enquire] Helpline helped to secure a positive outcome from the local authority for our child, together with a commitment to the revision of the authority’s policy.
Annual conference 2012 – Additional Support for Learning: sharing the lessons learned across Scotland
Enquire’s national conference ‘Additional Support for Learning: sharing the lessons learned across Scotland’ was hosted by East Lothian Council on 8 March at the Quay, Musselburgh.
The audience of parents and professionals from across Scotland heard from Minister for Children and Young People Aileen Campbell who stressed the Government’s commitment to early intervention at any time in a young person’s life. The Minister’s suggestion that sharing good practice is the foundation of growth and as a country we need to get better at it was echoed during the day.
Delegates took the opportunity in discussion and workshop sessions to highlight and reflect on what we are doing well and on what could be better.
This year we launched an engaging film in which children and young people talk about the difference support has made to their lives.
The conference ended on a high note with a keynote session by Martyn Rouse, Emeritus Professor Aberdeen University, whose encouragement and clarity were greatly appreciated.
