Preparing for adulthood - information sessions for parents

Is your child in year 9 or above?

From year 9 at the latest, discussions about your child or young person’s support should focus on the support needed to prepare them for adult life, focusing on their strengths and aspirations. This training will increase your awareness of what needs to be considered, enabling you to participate fully in preparations for you child/young person’s future.

Preparing for adulthood should focus on 4 key themes:

  • Education, training and employment
  • Independent living
  • Community inclusion
  • Good health

During the training we will explore these key themes and also consider

  • What will happen and when.
  • The importance of the young person’s opinions and encouraging them to make and influence decisions to the best of their ability.
  • Mental capacity.
  • What to expect from annual reviews for young people.

Dates for training

We are offering virtual training sessions via Zoom in partnership with SEND Voices Wokingham.

The next session 24 June at 7.30pm.
