  1. Iain Nisbet's talk in Belfast was inspiring. Thanks.
    It is clear that the CSP do not have enough 'teeth' to ensure that children with SEN and their parents are given a voice.
    Parental confidence will only grow if we give families affected by SEN scientifically validated treatment based on behavioural science.
