28-05-2020 Q&As from Videoconference for parents with EPS and CAMHS

Following our videoconference for parents and carers last week, we have put together a Q&A document, covering the questions that you raised. We had a very useful conversation with representatives of Educational Psychology, Child and Adolescent Mental Health, Social and Emotional Mental Health, Joint Service for Disabled Children, and Durants school (Behaviour lead). 

The Q&A summarises our discussions about the questions you raised covering: 

  • Supporting your child's learning at home
  • Emotion and behaviour (including challenging behaviour) 
  • Support for mental health issues - yours and your child's 

We have also included links to a range of other resources and websites on these issues. 

We will be working with a team drawn from EPS, CAMHS, SEMH, JSDC/Cheviots and Durants to look at what other support could be provided during this time, and had our first (virtual) meeting yesterday. We are using the results from our survey on your biggest concerns to inform our thinking so please do complete the survey if you haven't already had time to do so - it should take you less than 5 minutes.
