My name is Saj and I have 3 boys with SEN. I am a huge advocate of empowering families to ensure they have the knowledge and support to help them tackle the SEN journey. Having children with educational and health needs (inc mental health) myself, I understand how powerful having the knowledge and knowing the SEN law can be, when advocating for your child.
I am the founder/run a local Solihull SEN support group, where I have gained experience in organising SEN workshops/events/courses, consultations, coffee mornings, advocating and helping families at school meetings/mediation, assisting with parents/professionals engagement and facilitating SEN events. I also have some good links with neighbouring boroughs.
My passions is in SEND law, ensuring a child centred approach is adapted and mental health. Local authorities following the SEN law and accountability are two things that are very important to me.
I joined the forum to help with positive change in Solihull and to continuously represent families voices.
