Stockton Council is committed to using the views of young people with special educational needs to inform the development and delivery of services and activities. They asked Youth Focus: North East to carry out some consultation work with young people with special educational needs during Summer 2014 and then in early 2015.
The young people we met through the consultation work had a host of views and ideas. Stockton Council asked Youth Focus: North East to explore the development of an advisory group of young people with special educational needs – a group who could act as a reference point and one that could influence and inform decisions and developments.
Here are the reports from the consultations sessions with young people with SEN in Stockton.
