Early Years / SEND – FURTHER OPPORTUNITIES – Additional workshops for parents / carers and practitioners / volunteers
A special approach to Making it REAL in the North West
(Raising Early Achievement in Literacy)
The Early Childhood Unit at National Children’s Bureau are delighted to offer an extension project to the Early Years/SEND Partnership. The project, funded by the Department for Education, is focused on supporting families of young children with special needs through the Making it REAL programme. Making it REAL is an evidence based programme which supports parents in their vital role as a child’s first, and most enduring educators. It involves sharing professional knowledge and skills with parents, building their confidence in supporting their own children’s learning.
The project involves:
- Special Treasure Chests for families with young children with special needs to promote early literacy activities. These will be available for distribution through early years and specialist services, settings and schools, food banks and charities.
- An opportunity to become a Making it REAL Champion to share key messages.
- Workshops for families to share REAL activities for early home learning. These will take place on Zoom
- Workshops for practitioners to gain an understanding of how REAL can support families with young children
The final workshop for parents, carers and families will be held on Zoom on
The final workshop for practitioners and volunteers will be held as follows:
23.3.21 1.30 – 3pm MS Teams
This workshop is suitable for all early years practitioners and settings, charities, health services and anyone who has contact with young children.
To book a workshop place please email: [email protected] stating which workshop you would like to attend.

RESEARCH AND REPORTS
The experiences of minority ethnic heritage parents having a child with SEND: a systematic literature review
Given the need to provide culturally competent children’s services which support each child’s right to full educational participation, the current systematic literature review aims to provide an up-to-date, international review of empirical studies that investigate the experience of minority ethnic heritage parents who have a child with special educational needs and disability (SEND).
Studies were assessed using a qualitative assessment framework. Of the 17 studies that met the inclusion criteria, only 11 were classed as higher quality and included in the final synthesis. The findings highlight that for ethnic heritage families, parenting a child with a disability can be a highly stressful experience, involving a sense of loss and concerns for the child’s future, compounded by families and cultural factors as well as professional service factors, with religious beliefs and practices, on the whole, serving as a protective factor. Implications for educational psychology practice and future research are clearly identified.

The Longest Lockdown
A year out of school without essential therapy and delays to hospital checks has led to disabled children’s health getting worse, a new survey by the Disabled Children’s Partnership (DCP) has found.
The report finds that:
- 3 in 4 disabled children are facing delays to routine health checks.
- 70% of disabled children are unable to get therapies for their development.
- Two thirds of disabled children are still not getting support set out by law in their Education, Health and Care (EHC) plan.
I want to do well: a literature review of existing research on children and young people’s experiences of Covid-19.
This review focuses largely on experiences of lockdown, with further research anticipated to capture changing views and longer-term impacts, as well as to better understand the varied experiences of different groups of children and young people.
