These Participation Events are designed to give Mental health professionals and SEND parents carers the chance to work together to improve support for SEND children and young people.
Topics for this Mental Health participation session will be:
Neurodiversity & Gender Identity – Kite Trust will be with us explaining how they support many young people and their families and how they can support yours too!
Spectrum Gaming – Andy will be introducing Spectrum Gaming, an online community for autistic young people. The aims of Spectrum Gaming are to enable autistic young people to connect with others and improve mental health and wellbeing.
Feedback opportunity – Juliet from Taproot is with us to make sure your voices are heard when it comes to the support needs of your teenagers and young people. Help develop the Mental Health services for Learning Disability and Autism in a safe space.
Discussion -We will be hearing about what support is already available, and time for discussion about what works well and what else may be needed to ensure our childs SEND needs are met.
About the session:
You will be sent an email containing the Zoom link to access the session 2 days before, 2 hours before and when the session starts. Please do check your junk mail and spam folders as these emails sometimes end up there!
Be comfortable at Pinpoint sessions – You can keep your camera off and stay on mute and simply join us and other parent carers who “get it” from your sofa 😊
Who is Pinpoint?
Pinpoint provide help and information to parents and carers of children and young people aged 0-25 with additional needs and disabilities in Cambridgeshire.
No formal diagnosis is required to access support from Pinpoint – a child may be on a waiting list, accessing services, had a referral turned down, or just be struggling.
We offer signposting and events for all things SEND and are the Parent Carer Forum for Cambridgeshire. Pinpoint also give parent carers opportunities to have a say and get involved in improving local services. Find out more about us here.
