Unfortunately we have had to cancel our 'Coping with Home Learning' which was scheduled for Thursday 25th February 10.30 - 11.30 am, with Dr Emma Gore-Langton from the Enfield Educational Psychology team. We apologise for any inconvenience caused. 

24 Feb Cuppa and Chat

Our next 'Cuppa and Chat' session will be on Wednesday 24th February 10.30 - 11.30 am 

These informal online sessions give parents and carers of children with Special Needs and Disabilities an opportunity to connect with others who may be facing similar challenges (including members of the Our Voice team), to share experiences and ask questions. 

In this session we will be joined by a Children's Wellbeing Practitioner for a short relaxation exercise which you may find useful both during the day or when trying to get to sleep after a stressful day, or which you may wish to try using with your children as a calming technique. 

The sessions are completely informal so don't worry if you need to arrive late, start early, or face regular interruptions from your children. 

No need to book - just join us on your computer, tablet or smartphone here. If you have not used 'GoTo Meetings' before you will need to install the app first here
