Question S1W-8002

To ask the Scottish Executive, further to the statement by the Deputy Minister for Health and Community Care (25 May 2000, col. 1200), what opportunity will be offered to the Dyspraxia Foundation to make direct representations to the national special educational needs advisory forum in the process of its consideration of the Minister’s referral.

The Dyspraxia Foundation is being invited to submit a written presentation to the forum and to the Scottish Executive’s evaluation of the impact of in-service SEN training announced in Improving our Schools: Special Educational Needs – The Programme of Action.

Under its SEN Innovation Grants Programme, the Executive is also supporting a two-year joint project by Afasic (Action For All Speech Impaired Children) and the Dyspraxia Foundation called "Talking about Dyspraxia". This will produce an information pack for parents, guidance for education authorities and a programme of seminars and events to promote partnership between all concerned.
