The Adapt and Include SEND Conference is a one-day conference where we're dedicated to helping activity providers meet the needs of children with SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities).

Organised by Nicole Bateman, a former teacher, podcaster, and passionate SEND advocate, The Super Sensory Squad co-founder is on a mission to ensure that children with SEND receive the support they need to thrive.

With first-hand experience as a parent of an autistic child with epilepsy, Nicole understands the challenges faced by families navigating the world of activities and tutoring.

Many parents, like Nicole, hesitate to enrol their children in activities due to concerns about whether providers understand their child's specific needs.

The conference aims to address this by

offering training on various areas of SEND and empowering providers to make small adaptations that foster inclusivity in their sessions.

During the conference we will work together to create environments where every child feels valued and included.

  • Experienced speakers with both lived and professional experience

  • Choice of deep dive Workshops on understanding various needs

  • Practical adaptations to ensure your activity is inclusive for children with SEND

  • 2 Course Lunch included
